    Chapel renovations create a respite for Soldiers deployed to Poland

    Soldiers with the 49th Movement Control Battalion out of Fort Hood, Texas, and the 1st Infantry Division out of Fort Riley, Kansas, pose for a photo after renovating the Mission Command Element chapel in Poznan, Poland, Jan. 13, 2019.

    The two units spent more than 70 hours over the span of four months helping clean, sand off old wallpaper, and painting the walls to improve the sanctuary.

    The newly renovated chapel was revealed during a candlelight vigil service on Christmas Eve.

    Since the chapel’s renovation, to maximize the space, the room has also been utilized to facilitate other events, such as briefings and command training.

    “The intent was to create a place that people feel comfortable in [and] can come in throughout the work day to relax and have some quiet time away from the office,” said Sgt. Demowah Quoiyan, a religious affairs specialist with the 49th MCB. “I feel like we did that and more. We, as a unit ministry team, are here to support everyone, regardless of religious preference. We’re here to support Soldiers throughout the deployment by [any] means necessary.”
