What's for Lunch Chaplain?!

  1. well you are a chaplain candidate, so why write "whats for lunch chaplain?" you should add the candidate so you will not misguide people.

    1. LOL!! I didn't realize Chaplains and Candidates ate different things! I'll be sure to annotate that in future posts dealing with food. Also, while this is a public blog, these posts are mainly geared towards friends and family (versus an Army-sponsored professional blog) :) But I think it's pretty clear of my current status as a Candidate in previous blogs (and profile)! Thanks for visiting!

  2. While I appreciate your humor; I did not mean about the food, I meant about the title...even if in other posts you are direct about being a chaplain candidate, you still should be careful to not call yourself just chaplain. I am a full chaplain in the US army by the way, and I will be to the Chaplain Course in September because I went there in Fort Jackson 5 years ago but I need to go again due the changes in regulations and such. I am in the regular army though. Nice to meet you, did you graduate from chaplain school?

    1. The only difference between a Chaplain and my candidacy is privileged communication with my Soldiers (which they are aware of). Otherwise I am fully endorsed to perform various other functions that a typical Chaplain would (preaching, training, administering communion, etc.). It all depends on your endorser as well.
      I don't understand why you have to go back to CH-BOLC. I've never heard of that. Once you graduate from there you are fully qualified and no longer need to return for any reason. But if you have to go back, you should enjoy it as there are always new tools and skills to learn and apply. Let me know how it goes. I know they just got rid of per diem after my class and are requiring all students to dine at the DFAC which is interesting!
      Blessings!

    2. This is a new regulation from the Chief of Chaplain's office; if you graduate and in 5 years you do not have your first assignment yet, then you have to go back....a brand new regulation from the chief of chaplains, came about this year; so you better have your unit as a full chaplain in less than 5 years or chaplain course again. So no more per diem?! that is sad.....but the meals at DFAC then are free right?
