RMKS/1.  28 NOVEMBER 2005 WILL MARK THE 230TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE
UNITED STATES NAVY CHAPLAIN CORPS.  ON THIS IMPORTANT OCCASION, I

UNSWERVING COMMITMENT TO RELIGIOUS ACCOMMODATION THROUGHOUT THE SEA
SERVICES AND FOR THEIR DAILY CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE STRENGTH AND WELL
BEING OF OUR NAVY, MARINE, AND COAST GUARD TEAM.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY

2.  DURING THIS PAST YEAR, OUR NATION HAS WITNESSED CHANGE,
CHALLENGE, AND TRIUMPH.  AMIDST ACCELERATING DEMANDS, THE CHAPLAINS
AND RELIGIOUS PROGRAM SPECIALISTS HAVE CONTINUED TRANSFORMATIONAL
MINISTRY TO ALL SEA SERVICE PERSONNEL AND THEIR FAMILIES.  WHETHER

CARE AND ARE ESSENTAL TO OUR MISSION.
