Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionBaghdad, Iraq – Lt. Col. David Bowlus became the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) chaplain. Bowlus said that the very next day he had the privilege of providing the prayer at Maj. Gen. Gary J. Volesky’s change of command ceremony, welcoming him as division commander. From that point on, Bowlus worked closely with Volesky and Division Unit Ministry Teams to maintain the spiritual fitness of the Division’s Soldiers.

“It’s part of readiness, and I can’t think of a better coach, mentor and friend that I’ve had that’s been able to help me see what we need to do at our level to help that mission,” said Volesky, commander, 101st and the Combined Joint Forces Land Component Command – Operation Inherent Resolve.
