Chief of Army Chaplain Corps visits Fort Campbell

 

Written by Sgt. Samantha Stoffregen
101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – “This year’s [training] focus is on chaplain and religious affairs specialist identity,” Hurley said. “Our training is based on helping chaplains and their assistants go a little deeper with their own sense of who they are.”

Chaplains and religious affairs specialist spent two days conducting various small group activities and listening to speakers help them understand more about who they were and how that impacted their ability to help Soldiers and families.

“One interesting activity involves a retired chaplain, who has a great ability to portray chaplains from previous eras in little vignettes of [events] they would have been involved with,” Hurley said. “His presentation is so powerful. He’s acting out a scenario of something either a chaplain or chaplain’s assistant would have gone through.”

Chaplain (Maj. Gen.) Paul K. Hurley, Chief of Army Chaplain Corps, met with unit ministry teams from across the installation, Jan. 17-19, at Liberty Chapel at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The purpose of Hurley’s visit, was to conduct training. The training was part of a series of visits to installation UMTs across the country and help them understand their identity in order to provide stronger chaplain services. (Sgt. Samantha Stoffregen, U.S. Army)

My Two Cents: The NFL

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – We’re a little over a week from the NFL’s premier event, the Super Bowl.  It’s been a tumultuous year for the sports league that has its own day of the week.

The controversy started with former San Francisco Giant quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.  Other players started doing the same thing.  They each gave their reasons for the protest, but the insult was not taken lightly by fans.
