This is from OIF 3 (2005). Full combat gear. Since I was not allowed to carry a weapon I was able to use ammo pouches for other gear, in this case each pouch held 4 cigars nicely. In addition to this I could attach my Chaplain's kit to my vest. Kit included communion set, oil stock, Bible and Army version Book of Common Prayer.
I am a Priest in the Anglican Church of North America (ACNA). I am a Husband to Darcien Balog, 26 Years. I am a Father to four pretty cool kids (they are still not cooler than us parents) Ashleigh, John, James and Nick. I have one Grandchild Aramis (now he's real cool). I am a Soldier. The highlight of my Army Career was being assigned to the 3rd Squadron 7th United States Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division. I conducted two Combat tours with them to Iraq; the 2003 OIF invasion and 2005 OIF 3. I've seen God work in awesome ways, more so than most civilian Pastors could ever know.
