What is it like when one of the parents leaves for a military mission – perhaps to Afghanistan? The joys and worries of the soldier are the joys and worries of the military chaplain. Respect for the freedom of each individual is at the core for the chaplain; it is above all about listening, about sharing the work and personal joys and difficulties in respect of confidentiality. In their ministry, army chaplains cooperate with military psychologists, commanders, and all who care for the human dimension of the lives of soldiers and their families.
