Navy Capt. David Rodriguez, the command chaplain for 4th Marine Logistics Group, Marine Forces Reserve, talks with a patient of Maniilaq Health Center, April 24. Rodriguez made it his routine to check on the patients of the hospital to provide spiritual help. Rodriguez also flew to villages like Point Hope, Alaska, where he provided spiritual guidance to service members who helped save a victim of suicide attempt, as well as his family members and friends. Rodriguez and other service members were part of the Innovative Readiness Training Arctic Care 2013, which is a multi-service humanitarian and training program that focuses on enhancing the capability of U.S. forces in peacetime support operations, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. IRT Arctic Care brings medical, dental and veterinary aid to 12 rural villages in Alaska. The exercise is primarily a Reserve effort with Marine Forces Reserve taking the lead and receiving logistical and medical support from the National Guard, Army Reserve, Navy Reserve and Air Force Reserve.
