From the Homefront: Chaplains are here for you

Have you ever needed to speak with a chaplain, but didn’t know how? Are you unsure of the chaplains’ responsibilities? Coast Guard chaplains provide professional religious ministry through worship services, religious education, weddings, funerals and other religious rituals and rites. But they also are there to just talk with or consult with. They care for CG members and their families regardless of an individual’s beliefs. Chaplains are available 24/7 with confidential counseling to ensure service members and their families have the spiritual resilience to cope with the inevitable hardships of military life.
