    This book is about the experiences of a Casualty Notification Officer's experiences. The value of this text to the future chaplain is that it gives insight into how a causality notification takes place. Chaplains accompany the CNO for the notification. The book really shows the pain and healing surrounding a casualty notification. I highly recommend this text.
    LT, did you see the movie The Messenger?

      I tried it but found it distasteful. Thus I watched about the first 10 minutes.

        McLaughlin, Patrick. No Atheists in Foxholes: Prayers and Reflections from the Front. Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 2008.

        Do not let the title fool you. The book is really about a Navy Chaplain's experiences in Iraq. The author also served as a Chaplain for the President, which is an entirely unique position in itself. It's a good read for a Chaplain or Candidate.
