Navy Chaplains Serve All Faiths, No Faith

In a local North Carolina paper repeated at the Stars and Stripes, Navy Chaplain (Lt) Michael Tomlinson discusses the role of the chaplaincy — and the importance of serving all sailors:

“A person may not always be a person of faith but that doesn’t mean I can’t really listen to their problems, give them direction and help them…”

Whether it is marital issues, the holiday blues or suicidal ideations, chaplains are there to help, he said, and will never betray the trust of those who confide in them.
