Nearly nine months after his assumption of stole ceremony, making history as the division chaplain for the newly reactivated 7th Infantry Division at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., and its seven subordinate brigade's unit ministry teams, Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Darryl Hollowell (left) relinquished spiritual leadership to Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Paul Jaedicke (right), July 8, during a change of stole ceremony at the Lewis North Chapel."...when boys grow up playing with G.I. Joe actions figures, and this is very important, nobody wants to be the sailor...or the chaplain. Everybody wants to be the 11 Bravo with the crew served weapon or the SCUBA diver...but here I am. And there you are," Jaedicke paused. "Somehow this stole got placed around my neck. The Bible reminds us, in Proverbs, Chapter 19, 'Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails'," Jaedicke said of his returning to the 7th Infantry Division, where he previous served as a combat engineer platoon leader when the division was still a light division at Fort Ord, Calif.
