1st Supply Bn Chaplain

Welcome From the Chaplin

Marines, Sailors, and family, it is an honor to serve as the chaplain for 1st Supply Battalion. I arrived to the Battalion in July 2021. I am endorsed by the Baptist General Convention of Texas, and have been a chaplain for 8 years. I believe spiritual fitness is an important aspect for the wellbeing of each person and I respect the beliefs of all who serve.
