I am a retired USAF Lt Colonel and an ordained Baptist Pastor. I just finished a 1-year hospital chaplaincy residency program and have just been hired as a chaplain by Hospice of the Sandias here in Albuquerque. I will be receiving my Master of Divinity degree on 12/11/09 and we will party (within the tenets set by the Southern Baptist Convention of course) when that happens! I am excited now to be able to serve as a chaplain to a group of heroes who saved my house and my family a few years ago. May God continue to protect and bless our firefighters and their families.
