Chaplain’s mission in Liberia very important to U.S. Soldiers

 

Written by Sgt. Ange Desinor
13th Public Affairs Detachment

United States Africa CommandPaynesville, Liberia – Singing, clapping, praying and the reading of words in a Bible are all commonplace in a church service. That scene hasn’t changed, even in Liberia.

Major Alfred Grondski, chaplain for the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 36th Engineer Brigade, provides religious support to all service members at the National Police Training Academy, in support of Operation United Assistance.

“I minister closely with people I work with,” said Grondski, a Trenton, New Jersey, native. “That usually doesn’t happen back in the states like it is here, because in garrison a lot of the Soldiers go to their home church; there isn’t a home church here. This gives us an opportunity to come together as a Family and worship.”
