Chaplain visits engineering civic assistance project sites part of Exercise Cobra Gold 2013

U.S. Navy Lt. Kevan Q. Lim provides a religious service Jan. 24 for U.S. Marines at Ban Kuad Nam Man School in the Chat Trakarn District in the Phitsanulok province, Kingdom of Thailand. Lim rotates among five ongoing engineering civic assistance project sites as part of Exercise Cobra Gold 2013. “It is very important to provide religious services in a deployed environment,” said Lim, who was born in Singapore and joined the U.S. Navy from Gig Harbor, Wash. “Service members are extremely busy, and they need time to practice their faith and keep their moral compass pointed in the right direction.” Lim is a chaplain with Combat Logistics Regiment 37, 3rd Marine Logistics Group, III Marine Expeditionary Force and currently assigned to the combined joint civil military operations task force as part of the exercise. Cobra Gold is the largest multinational exercise in the Asia-Pacific region and provides the Kingdom of Thailand, United States, Singapore, Japan, Republic of Korea, Indonesia and Malaysia an opportunity to maintain relationships and enhance interoperability.
