Chaplains in Afghanistan

The Frame has a photo series of Chaplains serving with the US Army in Afghanistan.

Truly moving pictures of the trials that these (mostly) men face on a daily basis in serving the needs of the troops.

What strikes me, though, is that I know one of the priests featured: Capt. Carl Subler. He and I grew up about 30 minutes from one another, but didn't get to know one another till we were in College Seminary at the Josephinum together. He was studying for Cinci at the time, but had a great desire to be co-sponsored with the Archdiocese for Military Services, US. We didn't do that, Columbus did. Hence, he is a priest for the Columbus Diocese on loan to AMS. God Speed and stay safe!

The Crescat pulls some of his photos out in a separate link.

Thanks to David for the link.
