ABSTRACT
The article discusses the strategic value of chaplains to the war effort and community. Prior to the events unveiled at Fort Bragg, North Carolina by the EPICON team, the U.S. Army Chaplaincy had begun piloting a proactive, unit-based prevention training program to strengthen marriages with what is known as marriage education. Developed in the 25th Infantry Division in 1999, the Building Strong and Ready Families program has become an example of how marriage education can work in the Army.
