  • Ministry team's dream becomes reality before Easter

    Apr 2, 2013

    Within the early days of their deployment, a team of chaplain's assistants came together with a plan: a mutual agreement making something beautiful for all to enjoy, helping make days here in Afghanistan brighter. Within their offices at Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan, the team of assistants from various battalions within the 3rd Brigade Combat Team "Rakkasans," 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), decided to restore the chapel after it had been heavily damaged in an attack in the summer of 2012. Located in a throughway, the building's only distinguishing features are its tiny steeple and the zebra patterned wood on its exterior. Like battle wounds, the building stood resilient with scars of unpainted wood. When the team arrived from Fort Campbell, Ky, to the large FOB in eastern Afghanistan, much of the chapel was already repaired. However, one feature remained absent. "When we arrived here, the chapel was all boarded up and didn't look like a chapel," said U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Eric Esposito, brigade chaplain's assistant. "All the windows were covered with wood. It was hard to distinguish where the chapel was."
