Our troops all around the globe rely on the Chaplains who provide guidance, advice, and comfort when times are tough and a serviceman needs someone to talk to confidentially. Chaplains care for our troops in every sense of the word, including emotionally and spiritually. Chaplains help groups like Move America Forward by making sure that our care packages get distributed to the troops who don’t get mail as often and need them most
CELEBRATE with the Army Chaplain Corps today! SEND A PACKAGE to Troops in Afghanistan where hundreds of Chaplains are serving today – taking care of their fellow troops and distributing MAF care packages to the soldiers who need them most!
