Who: Maldive Anadullah (Director of Religious Affairs) and CH Steve Satterfield

Where: FOB Finley-Shields, Jalalabad, Nangahar Province, Afghanistan

When: 1430, 4 APR 2010

What: CH Satterfield visited with Mawlavi Anadullah, the Director Of Hajj and discussed religions in the US Military. He explained the pluralistic history of the military chaplaincy and how there are several different chaplains (Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist) within the ranks of the US Army. CH Satterfield continued to explain that if religious services can not be performed other sources are provided. This serves as another example of how cultural and religious barriers are being broken as we work together for stability and peace in Afghanistan.
