On the cover
The clerical robe in camouflage is unexpected, but speaks of a ministry that goes even into danger to convey the presence of God to those in the military.  The stitches on the helmet hint that war, of course, is far from being a tidy affair--whether theologically or in its day-to-day decisions.  The pins are samples of those worn by Jewish, Christian, and Muslim chaplains--and those (gold, top right) worn by chaplain candidates.

 For God and Country: Chaplains Who Serve the U.S. Armed Forces

More than 2,700 active duty chaplains serve the U.S. military at home and abroad. They serve men and women who wield incredible power and whose vocations place them in daunting, life-and-death situations. Unique challenges, opportunities, and theological issues such as “just war” are a daily part of the ministry of military chaplains.
