The U.S. Army Chaplains Corps is to provide religious support to America's Army. Chaplains advise commanders to ensure the 'free exercise' rights for all Soldiers are upheld - including those who hold no faith. Chaplains perform religious support activities according to their faith and conscience and provide religious support of other faith groups by coordinating with another chaplain or qualified individual to perform the support needed.
The Religious Support (RS) Directorate advises the Senior Commander, Joint Task Force – National Capital Region (NCR)/U.S. Army Military District of Washington (MDW) and staff on all matters pertaining to chaplains, chaplain activities and ministry, morals, and morals as affected by religion in current and contingency operations in a joint environment (Executive Order 202330Z, dated 20 Jun 2003). The RS Directorate provides spiritual and moral leadership as well as ceremonial support within the command. The RS Directorate provides technical oversight of religious activities for all subordinate commands and installations in the NCR. The RS Directorate implements the plans, policies, and programs of Headquarters, Department of the Army Chief of Chaplains, as they relate to JTF-NCR/MDW IAW AR 165-1.
