  • Redeployment: Chaplains, ACS offer post-deployment aid to couples

    Sep 16, 2010

    <b>FORT STEWART, Ga.</b> - It's probably true that time spent apart can make you appreciate and care even more for a person, but long absences or constant absences can be hard on a marriage. Consequently, repeated, year-long deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan have taken a heavy toll on Soldiers and their spouses assigned to Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield. For this reason, Chap. (Col.) Bill Ralston, 3rd Infantry Division rear detachment chaplain, said Stewart-Hunter makes two viable sources available to help Soldiers re-unite with their spouses following re-deployment. One offers spiritual guidance via the installation chaplaincy; the other offers mostly secular classes for couples through Army Community Services.
