Chaplains Reflect on Tours in Afghanistan

Sep 29, 2021 | Eagle Commission, National Organizations

Earlier this month, our nation and the world remembered the horrific events of 20 years ago on September 11, 2001. The terrorist attacks at the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the failed hijacking of United Airlines Flight 93 that crashed in Shanksville, Pa., led to military operations in Afghanistan and later in Iraq.

That day changed all of us who remember in vivid details where we were and what we were doing when we heard the news. It continues to impact how we live our everyday lives today.

The Eagle Commission is honored to share a conversation with four of our chaplains who served tours of duty in Afghanistan, led by Eagle Commission Endorser Mark Penfold. Watch as they share what ministry and life was like for them then and how God has helped them since those days. These men provide a Biblical perspective on how to move forward with faith in God and His eternal truth and how our only lasting hope is in the life-changing Gospel.


Watch the whole discussion here.

A version of the story first appeared in the Eagle Commission’s newsletter.
