Chaplain Paul A. Hyder, Lieutenant, Chaplain Corps, USN, doesn't need a pulpit or a church to preach God's word to his congregation of sailors and Marines. A muddy hill and open ears will do just fine.

Proud of his time as a young enlisted Marine, Hyder said, "One of the things I enjoyed about being a Marine is that we roughed it. That's going out in the woods and the mud, and that's exactly what God was calling me to do. I felt like I was good at bringing the gospel to an expeditionary situation; it was something I was wired to do."
