A Glorious Past - Powerful Present - Challenging Future
Established by the Second Continental Congress in 1775, the Army Chaplaincy predates the Declaration of Independence and is both the largest and oldest military chaplaincy in the world. More than 25,000 chaplains have served since then in 36 wars and 242 major combat engagements. Six were awarded the nation's highest military award for valor (The Medal of Honor). Many former Army Chaplains have served in prominent positions of government, education and religion. Today, as in the past, chaplains serve in a great variety of positions and places throughout the world. While their methods of ministry may change with the transformation of the battlefield, their ministry and message are timeless and immeasureable.
No matter what your faith group, the Army Chaplaincy offers various ways for you to serve both God and your Country. From providing support to Unit Ministry Teams as a Chaplain Assistant, to caring for the spiritual well-being of Solders and their families as an Army Chaplain, you'll discover the opportunities are as varied as they are unique.
