101st Airborne Division Battalion Chaplain serves to impact world, comfort others

 

Written by Sgt. Sharifa Newton
40th Public Affairs Detachment

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – As you walk through the doors of the Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 101st Airborne Division, and turn left you see the battalion chaplain’s open door.

Just past his assistant you can see Capt. Daniel T. Isfan, HHB chaplain, who aspires to impact the world.

“I love what I do,” Isfan said. “I love being there for people.”

Being in the Army uniform puts Isfan in a position where he can be a positive influence on Soldiers – to him there is nothing better than building relationships with the people he can provide guidance, support and encouragement.

Isfan was born and raised in South Side Chicago until he was about 15 years old. His parents wanted a better lifestyle for their children, so they moved to Phoenix, Arizona.

Cpt. Daniel T. Isfan, the battalion chaplain for Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), poses for a photo on Fort Campbell, Ky, June 11. “You never know who's going to walk through the door, so you always have to be ready to either give a word of encouragement, a shoulder to cry on, a word of wisdom, or just a presence, someone to be there,” said Isfan. (Sgt. Sharifa Newton, 40th Public Affairs Detachment)

Memorial Day 2018: Remembering the Ultimate Sacrifice made in Afghanistan

 

Written by Staff Sgt. Jared Duhon
438th Air Expeditionary Wing

U.S. Air ForceKabul, Afghanistan – Memorial Day is a day to ensure those who have fallen are never forgotten. And whether a few years, 20 years, or more, there can never be enough thanks given for those 13 who fought and made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan this past year.

Remembering those 13 warriors, who fought for what was right and were sadly taken from the fight too early, is a small token of appreciation that can be given. It only takes a moment to think about the lives these people might have lived, each different from the last and yet all still had the same goal of making a better place for those who cannot fight. This small gesture will ensure that their contribution to the missions they fought for will not go in vain.
