Easter service at KAF

Capt. Sean Levine, chaplain, 117th Infantry Battalion, 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, prepares for the Easter or Pascha (a Christian version of Passover) service at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, April 23. The lighting of incense is an ancient method of expressing reverence. The darkness of the church represents the time Jesus Christ spent in his tomb prior to his resurrection.
