Two months ago we made our first presentation about the Shepherd and Elder Care to Caregiver (C2C) Program to the Advanced Course C4 14-001 Class. There were 36 students in the class. Seventeen of the class members have linked with a Shepherd, nine students declined to participate and nine have not indicated one way or another. Most likely that means they are declining. In addition, four who attended the Brigade Chaplain Functional Course have indicated they wish to link with a Shepherd. Considering that this is strictly a voluntary program, we are off to a great start. Thank you to our Shepherds who have linked with a chaplain. I know the mentoring you do with them will encourage them and be helpful to them.
