But she was a chaplain in an Aviation Brigade, going to a large, safe COB. There wouldnt be dangerous convoys. There wouldnt be mortars shaking everyone from their beds in the middle of the night. Except for the long time away from family and home, it would be an easy tour. Until June 2, 2008, when the Chaplains world was turned upside down. You know the pain of military suicides through statistics. Now, share that pain through the eyes of a Chaplain who lost her assistant 10 months into a 15 month tour in Iraq. His pain may have ended that fateful summer morning, but nothing will ever be the same for those who experience Unvalidated Pain.
