    181128-N-IY469-002 – NMCP’s Pastoral Care team celebrates the 243rd anniversary of the Chaplain Corps. It’s amazing that the legend of the chaplain comes from a warrior, St. Martin of Tours, who, at the time, around 316 A.D., cut off a portion of his cloak for a begger,” said Lt. Cmdr. Douglas Grace, staff chaplain. “He was so moved by that moment of caring for a person in need that he then later gives up his commission in the Army and turns to a life of ministry. The French who made him a saint used the word ‘CHaplən, and that’s where we get the word chaplain today, as our need and caring for a person in need.”
