  • It's true! No weapons for Chaplains

    If you are considering the Chaplaincy, then you will quickly learn that chaplains are unarmed and noncombatants.

    This means that under no circumstance will you ever touch a weapon. The only possible exception is that you had to carry a weapon off the battlefield either while helping a fallen soldier or to keep it from falling into the enemy's hands. Even then that could raise suspicions

    Chaplains are provided a Chaplain's Assistant that is trained to provide security for the chaplain.

    Disclaimer: I am not a chaplain.

    I have to lay my cards down....I'm pretty happy about not carrying a weapon. As a Chaplain you represent your faith background as well as the Army.....if I started hurting people with a weapon it would be as though my faith tradition was....therefore keeping that separation is a good thing as not to sully what is holy.....

      Did you ever see this movie when the Chaplain kills the enemy in WWII? Good Christopher Reeve movie.

      http://www.chrisreevehomepage.com/m-monsignor.html
      The story begins with a compelling scene as Christopher Reeve is being ordained as a young Roman Catholic priest. World War II is raging and Reeve's
      character, John Flaherty, immediately volunteers to be an army chaplain. Thrust into the heat of battle, Flaherty is overwhelmed by "dead men everywhere" as he
      commandeers a machine gun and opens fire on the Germans, starting a counterattack by the allies. "Thou shalt not kill" is but the first of many
      commandments that Father Flaherty will violate during 122 minutes as the filmmakers pile on one shocking incident after another.

          No.....I didn't. Interesting.....I'm not down with breaking commandments so it doesn't look like one for me. Perhaps, I wouldn't know where to find the movie.
