Chiefs of Chaplains of the United States

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the United States armed forces, the Chiefs of Chaplains of the United States are the senior service chaplains who lead and represent the Chaplain Corps of the United States Army, Navy, and Air Force. The Navy created the first Office of the Chief of Chaplains in 1917; the Army followed in 1920, and the Air Force established its own in 1948 after it became a separate branch.

The three Chiefs of Chaplains and the three active-duty Deputy Chiefs of Chaplains from the Army, Navy, and Air Force comprise the Armed Forces Chaplains Board (AFCB) which advises the Secretary of Defense and the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness on religious, ethical, and moral matters, in addition to a number of policy issues.[1][2]

The current military Chiefs of Chaplains are:

  • ✪ Master Chief explains what goes in to being a Navy SEAL


The Trident is the only device that signifies you and identifies you as a SEAL operator. Every day I earn my Trident no matter where I'm at or what I'm doing. Whether it's on the battlefield or on liberty, I earn my Trident every day. We keep ourselves out of the limelight because of the mission that we do. It's for our own security, the security of our teams, our teammates, and our families. When I saw the SEAL video and they showed some of the training, traveling the world, "That's the job for me. That's the job I want to do. That is a challenge that I want to take." They said, "How many start training, how many end training?" I said, "I want to be that part that's going to end training," because I – that's the kind of challenge I want to get into. The philosophy starts with Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training – the BUDS program, that's the training you have to go to a SEAL team. They – they push you to the limits. The first eight weeks is mostly physical training. And then they also put in there first aid, medical, hydro recognizance, different things that are – they're the basics of what SEALs do. You'll see the changes in your physical ability to do the obstacle course, to do the swims, to do surf passage. BUDS is not for everyone and that's where the first eight weeks is really getting to who really wants to be here and wants to be in the SEAL organization and who doesn't. Within a SEAL team there are SEAL platoons. Within that platoon, you'll have guys that are working in the comms department with the various radios. You have guys within the air department that are taking care of the parachutes, the fast-rope lines. You have personnel that work in the intelligence department that are working on the various maps, collecting any intel. So there are specific tasks underneath that SEAL platoon for those members but it takes all of them to make a successful platoon when they deploy overseas. I'm a Special Operations Master Chief within the SEAL community in the United States Navy. For more information, go to or find us on Facebook.
