Chaplain assistant provides care, patience

Only three days after Christmas, the Army will celebrate its 105th year since the creation of the chaplain assistant position, and will dedicate this day to honoring the men and women who were given the special duty of assisting chaplains in performing their duties by providing religious support for all Soldiers and their Families. Chaplain Assistant Sgt. Aaron LaBarge, 716th Military Police Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, arrived at Fort Campbell in October and has been fulfilling his duties with enthusiasm since joining the Army in 2007.
