Chaplain candidates learn to navigate

Chaplain candidates learn how to use a compass during the land navigation class portion of Patriot Defender, Saturday, July 20 at Fort Wolters, Mineral Wells, Texas. After the class, candidates embarked on a four-hour land navigation exercise. During their time at Fort Wolters, candidates learned what deployed life can be like for chaplains by engaging in multiple class and hand-on training exercises. Patriot Defender is part of a five-week tour candidates embark on to see if they want to become chaplains. It is also a time when chaplain cadre can evaluate candidates and see if they would be a good fit for the program. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Melissa Harvey)
