Fort 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.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Pasadena, CA – Storm chasing takes luck and patience on Earth — and even more so on Mars.
For scientists watching the Red Planet from data gathered by NASA’s orbiters, the past month has been a windfall. “Global” dust storms, where a runaway series of storms creates a dust cloud so large it envelops the planet, only appear every six to eight years (that’s three to four Mars years). Scientists still don’t understand why or how exactly these storms form and evolve.
