The U.S. Army Chaplaincy
The history of the chaplaincy of the United States Army reaches back to the beginnings of the nation itself. The organized chaplaincy was created by an act of the Continental Congress on 29 July 1775 upon the recommendation of General George Washington. Since then, Army chaplains have provided moral and spiritual leadership to generations of soldiers and families in peace and war.
Free Exercise of Religion
The Dwight David Eisenhower Army Medical Center chaplains seek to protect the rights to free exercise of religious faith and help protect the right of religious privacy. When asked, chaplains will call a patients civilian clergy or religious leader and provide use of the chapel or a room for counseling as needed.
For additional matters of your faith ask your chapel staff personnel.
