The U. S. Army is blessed with thousands of talented, dedicated and faithful Soldiers, Civilians and Family members who daily answer our Nation's call to service. Where the Army goes the Chaplain Corps is there striving to provide Spiritual support which is shown by their commitment to; Nurture the Living, Care for the Wounded, and Honor the Fallen- Pro Deo et Patria (for God and Country).
The Continental Congress established chaplains as an integral part of the Continental Army on July 29th, 1775. Over the centuries, more than 25,000 chaplains have served in the US Army as spiritual leaders for Soldiers, Family members, and Civilians. From military installations to deployed combat units, chaplains and chaplain assistants serve in the most religiously diverse organization in the world.
Always present with Soldiers in war and in peace Army chaplains have served in all of America's major wars and combat engagements from the colonial era through the present day. Nearly 300 Army chaplains have laid down their lives in their service and seven members of the Chaplain Corps have been awarded the Medal of Honor. Currently, more than 3,000 chaplains serve the Army representing 140 different religious organizations.
