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.
