In 2009, I took a six month “vacation” with the Army to Afghanistan. As an Air Force Chaplain, I served as a “FOB hopper” to nine Army forward operating bases. It was a difficult deployment. I faced setback after setback as I tried to learn how to minister in the Army culture. Despite consistent tragedies and a few deaths, Soldiers were hesitant to get to know, or counsel with, this overconfident Air Force chaplain. Worship services usually involved one to two attendees while services at my home station before I deployed averaged around 1,100 attendees. Near the end of my deployment, I received notification that I was being reassigned after less than two years from my dream job as soon as I returned. I was beyond frustrated.
