Professional and Religious Guidance
Chaplains in the U.S. Air Force live and work alongside Airmen, both at home stationed with their families and in deployed locations. The United States Constitution guarantees the free exercise of religion in the military, supporting a culture of dignity
and respect for all. Your spiritual care will dramatically impact the lives of our U.S. Airmen around the globe. Regardless of religious affiliations.
Air Force chaplains (a pastor, priest, rabbi or imam) enhance the morale, spiritual fitness and resilience of Airmen and their families. They advise military leadership on religious, spiritual and ethical matters. Most importantly, chaplains advocate for
the religious and spiritual needs of anyone searching for guidance. The United States depends on the Air Force to lead the way in national security in an increasingly high-tech world. Join our team of women and men committed to Integrity First, Service
Before Self and Excellence in All We Do.
