The Bodyguard

I met my new Chaplain Assistant yesterday, SPC C.

He's been in the Army a little less time than I have, unlike SFC McG, who'd been in the Army 24 years already by the time I signed up. SPC C arrived at Chaplain Assistant school at Fort Jackson two weeks after I left there after my Chaplain Basic Training ended in 2007.

SFC McG is a very large man, but SPC C (who describes himself as "weighing a dainty 300") dwarfs him considerably. My new Chaplain Assistant played offensive line for nine years (into college) before deciding football wasn't fun for him any longer. He then joined the Army to be a Chaplain Assistant.

I look positively puny next to him. (I'll post a photo soon.)

I'm glad to be having him run interference for me!

Please add him to your prayer lists, if you'd be so kind.

Blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ
