US Navy Ensign Aroon Seeda is reportedly being commissioned into the Chaplain Candidate Program. When he completes his requirements, he will reportedly be the second (or perhaps third) Buddhist Chaplain in the US Navy. Like several other Buddhist Chaplains, Seeda will attend University of the West, a Buddhist school in southern California.
Likewise, Brett Campbell will enter the Candidate program at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Naropa was founded Buddhist Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
