This is totally cool.

That surprises me.  I'd have thought that a Buhddist chaplain would have already exhisted.  They've had some from more sinester sources for over two years.

Buddhists in the military? So much for ahimsa (non-violence)...

I am actually surprised they don't already have one considering the number of asian Buddists who have married soldiers over the past 50 years.

It is sort of like Orthodoxy.  The stuff you read in books is ideals, not what day to day lay people practice.
