The HealthCare Chaplaincy Network yesterday debuted Chaplain Care for Veterans and Chat with a Chaplain. Both are online and consultative (email, phone and video chat) resources which provide professional spiritual and emotional support to veterans and current service members, as well as their families and friends. They are additional extensions of HCCN’s mission of training chaplains and providing spiritual support for the seriously ill as well as their families. While they are similar to their Chaplains on Hand and Chat with a Chaplain civilian services, the veterans’ version is oriented to service-related issues. HCCN has also done groundbreaking work with the US Navy’s Chaplain Corps to brief chaplains and mental health clinicians on spiritual care for those with PTSD and TBI [TTA 2 Apr 14]. The launch was held appropriately on the USS Intrepid on Four Chaplains Day, commemorating the selfless sacrifice of four chaplains (Roman Catholic, Methodist, Dutch Reformed and Jewish) on the torpedoed USAT Dorchester on 3 February 1943 in the North Atlantic.
