A Matter Of Opinion

Military Chaplains: Wear it on your sleeve

As we were working our Sunday editorial on how the role of police — and workplace — chaplains goes way beyond faith denominations, Doug Floyd found a Web site that showed military branch and collar insignia. They have elaborate insignias for Muslim, Buddhist, Christian and Jewish chaplains, as well as chaplain assistants.

Look at them here.

Military chaplains show their religious preference on their uniform.

But, like all chaplains, military chaplains don’t let their personal beliefs influence their mandates: To take care of the suffering among them.
