"Pro Deo Et Patria"
The mission of the U.S. Army Chaplains Corps is to provide religious support to America’s Army. Chaplains advise commanders to ensure that the ‘free exercise’ rights for all Soldiers are upheld - including those who hold to no faith.
The Chaplain Corps' motto is “Pro Deo et Patria” – For God and Country – and points to their dual role in our Army. As personal staff officers, chaplains advise commanders on matters relating to free exercise of religion, unit morale, ethics, and the impact of religion on operations. As religious leaders, chaplains are qualified clergy who are endorsed by their denomination or faith group.
In the pluralistic setting of the military, the Chaplain Corps provides religious support to individuals from all faith traditions. To achieve this, Chaplains cooperate with one other without compromising the standards and tenets of their faith tradition.
Chaplains perform religious support activities according to their faith and conscience and provide religious support for those of other faith groups by coordinating with another chaplain or qualified individual to perform the support needed. At the unit level, a chaplain and religious affairs specialist form a Unit Ministry Team, or UMT, and are embedded throughout all three components of the Army – Active, Guard and Reserve.”
