Last Wednesday several of the WWAN team finally got to meet and visit with the new WTB (Warrior Transition Battalion) chaplain. What a treat! We met Chaplain Thompson and his assistant, SPC Beckett, for lunch at the Rim. Prior to joining the Army he was a full time pastor and was spending a lot of time working with warriors at the VA. Finally someone suggested he enlist since he was devoting so much time ministering to the soldiers. Chaplain Thompson’s last assignment was in Maryland. He said he had no idea San Antonio was so beautiful. He is looking forward to the arrival of his family and working with our ministry.
On the way back to Fredericksburg we all agreed that we were excited about continuing to work with the chaplaincy to provide some respite for the warriors. And that GOD really blessed us by sending Chaplain Thompson to San Antonio.
