Jeff Horne, a subject matter expert on Balkan-U.S. relations, talks to Maj. David Schnarr, chaplain for the 525th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, about the various religious communities in Kosovo as Lt. Col. Lozano, chaplain for the 205th Infantry Brigade, First Army Division East, observes during the pre-deployment training at the Mission Training Complex for KFOR at Fort Bragg, N.C., Feb. 5. Horne said the church of the Black Madonna in Letnica, where Mother Teresa received her calling, is very near Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo and encouraged the Chaplin to take advantage of the religious and cultural sites in the area. Lozano, and more than a dozen other First Army soldiers from Camp Atterbury Joint Maneuver Training Center, Ind., and Fort Hood, Texas, traveled to N.C. to provide relevant, realistic, training that reflects the most current conditions soldiers will face in theater. Last year, First Army Division East trained more than 19,000 soldiers for deployment to places like Afghanistan, the Sinai Peninsula, the Horn of Africa, and Kosovo. (U.S. Army photo by Capt.
