Hello everybody, Thank you for you advice on the quality of ablutions in officers' messes. I have been doing some soul searching recently and have decided to combine my passion for matters military with my religious convictions. Therefore, I have signed up for a degree in divinity starting in September and intend to join the Army as a chaplain once I am ordained. I am keen to develop the necessary skills of a good army chaplain and decided to ask you boys for advice. Therefore, what are the characteristics and traits of a good chaplain?
