The National Guard is up to its eyeballs in COVID-19. As the Chief Chaplain, National Guard Bureau (NGB), we have over 113 Religious Support Personnel (Chaplains and Religious Affairs Specialists) providing Religious Support to the 50 states, 3 Territories, and the District of Columbia. Chaplains are providing online Strong Bonds Training, Suicide Prevention Training, Virtual Services, and Health & Welfare Checks virtually! We have over 22K National Guard SMs activated and my office is coordinating support providing policy and resources where needed! Incredible time to serve!
