2008 - Commissioned as 1LT in the USAR (Chaplain Corps)

2009 - Attended Officer Basic Course

2009 - Assigned as BN/Hospital Chaplain of 801st Combat Support Hospital

2010 - Attended Phase 1 & 2 of Chaplain School, Fort Jackson, SC

2011 - Deployed to Munich Germany in support of Chaplain duties

As Chaplain of 801st Combat Support Hospital, his responsibilities includes providing religious services to soldiers of different faith groups, counseling, teaching classes in suicide prevention, cultural sensitivity, etc. He also does "Yellow Ribbon Event" training for service members who are deploying, and have recently arrived from deployment. In between his drill weekends, the Chaplain Corps and his unit send him to specialized training that is useful in his assignment as a hospital chaplain.

Thank you, Father for your service.
