These days, it seems that there is a common understanding that the very worst thing that could possibly exist is war. When asked, "If you could do anything…", the most common answer is, "I would bring about world peace."
Whether or not one agrees with this philosophy is one matter, but I don't think that anyone wants our soldiers who are in the middle of Iraq or Afghanistan or anywhere else to die. And if someone does, then he's got problems.
But what is arguably more important than our beloved soldier's lives are their souls. For this reason we have created a Chaplain Registry. Here we have items that chaplains throughout the world at war have asked for, and through the generosity of our customers, we supply them those items. The Chaplains receive the items and then distribute them to the soldiers in their care.
Most of these items are small books or medallions that can easily be carried where ever a soldier is ordered, and can be a great source of comfort. There are also a few books that are slightly heavier reading.
Whether or not you agree with the idea of a just war, if you want to show your gratitude to those who are risking their lives to save yours, I highly recommend taking advantage of this service. You can also include a personal message that will be sent with the items to the chaplain!
