Cannon AFB Chapel Helps Achieve Serenity
In July, US Army Chaplain (Capt) Somya Malasri was recently hosted a “Buddhist meditation and yoga workshop,” sponsored by the Cannon Air Force Base chapel.
Generally, chapel services aren’t newsworthy events, and except for a few photos, this event was similar. What makes this significant (though not unique), of course, is the demonstration of the extent to which the US military goes to provide for the spiritual needs of its servicemembers — even those of minority faiths.
While its certainly not perfect (as no institution is), the US military generally does an admirable job of supporting the religious freedom of its troops.
