Scuttlebutt 20: Four Chaplains Part 3 – COL James Driscoll, USA (Ret.)

COL James Driscoll (Ret) joins Scuttlebutt for the third part in our Four Chaplains Month special. COL Driscoll is the Special Assistant To The President at Wesley Theological Seminary overseeing the military chaplain doctoral program and a hospital chaplain at Chesapeake Regional Healthcare.  This week he takes us on an exploration of chaplaincy from his days in the Virginia and D.C. National Guard learning from vastly different and diverse groups of people, to how chaplains promote personal well-being, and how chaplains should be proactive and accompany commanders in the field. COL Driscoll draws on his experience in the Army – including at the Pentagon, at Wesley Theological Seminary and more to expand our understanding and appreciation of chaplains all over the world.
