USS Jason Dunham Hosts Navy Chaplain

Peter Ott, a chaplain assigned to amphibious dock landing ship USS Rushmore (LSD 47), commenced observance of the 40-day season of Lent by offering religious services and counseling as part of a U.S. 5th Fleet effort to ensure all ships operating in the area have access to religious services.“The Navy cares about Sailors’ well-being and their right and ability to exercise their religious beliefs,” Ott said. “I’m here to help facilitate that the best I can.”U.S. guided-missile destroyers often do not have chaplains permanently stationed on board and rely on command lay leaders to perform worship services. Lay leaders are volunteers appointed by the commanding officer who are trained by chaplains to serve the needs of a particular religious faith group. Lay leaders may conduct religious services, but may not exercise specific activities usually reserved for ordained clergy.Ott said lay leaders are often prohibited from performing sacraments or offering counseling to crewmembers but still do a terrific service for their command. “There’s not much difference between a chaplain and a lay leader, spiritually speaking,” said Ott. “The main thing I bring to the table that a lay leader cannot is confidentiality. A Sailor can walk into my office, talk about personal issues without it becoming a command issue and leave with a weight lifted off their shoulders.”Quartermaster 2nd Class Johnathan Restrepo, USS Jason Dunham’s Protestant lay leader, said the Chaplain brings a lot more than counseling abilities and confidentiality. “Chaplains have different personalities and backgrounds they bring with them,” Restrepo said. “I think the crew gets used to the way the lay leader does things, but having a chaplain on board can make worship a little more exciting and feel like you’re going to church back home.”Restrepo also thinks having a chaplain on board boosts morale by creating an atmosphere of trust and comfort. “Even non-religious crewmembers go to him for advice or just to talk,” said Restrepo. “Just knowing he is there and his door is always open makes a big difference.”USS Jason Dunham is deployed with the John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group to the U.S. 5th Fleet areas of responsibility conducting maritime security operations, theater security cooperation efforts and support missions for Operation Enduring Freedom.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 19, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: Chaplain View post tag: Naval View post tag: hostscenter_img View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy Training & Education View post tag: Jason View post tag: USS View post tag: Dunhamlast_img read more

Red Force narrowly miss out as Hurricanes hold on for a draw

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC) – What appeared to be an unavoidable defeat for Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, almost ended in a victory but Leeward Islands Hurricanes held on grimly for a draw in tense moments late on the final day of their sixth-round game here on Sunday.In pursuit of 192 for victory at Warner Park, Hurricanes were seemingly cruising towards an inevitable victory at 166 for four with Test all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall (48) and captain Terrance Warde (27) involved in a 65-run fifth-wicket stand.LEG-SPINNER IMRAN KHANBut left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein (4-40) and leg-spinner Imran Khan (3-44) combined to wreck the Hurricanes middle- and lower- order as five wickets fell for 17 runs in the space of 35 balls to leave the innings tottering on 183 for nine.It was then left to Devon Thomas, who had earlier retired hurt at 57 for three, to return and in combination with last-man Sheno Berridge, carried the hosts to safety.Red Force had earlier folded for 155 in their second innings after resuming the morning on 94 for six, with Cornwall finishing with career-best figures of eight for 51 with his aggressive off-spin.Joshua DaSilva, unbeaten overnight on 45, finished on 79 not out to hold the innings together, in a knock lasting 168 balls in just over 3-¼ hours with seven fours and a six.He put on 26 with Akeal Hosein (3) for the seventh wicket and 31 for the ninth wicket with Uthman Muhammad (14).Hurricanes then suffered a double blow in pursuit of their target when openers Kieran Powell and Montcin Hodge both fell for five with 19 runs on the board before Thomas put on 27 with Amir Jangoo (10) for the third wicket to halt the slide.When Thomas limped off 11 runs into a promising fourth-wicket stand with Hamilton, Warde arrived to extend the partnership to 55 and inject further hope into the Hurricanes chase.Fast bowler Anderson Phillip hit Hamilton in front to break the stand but Cornwall resisted, belting three fours and sixes in a 44-ball cameo.Warde’s dismissal, however, signalled another shift in the momentum as Red Force narrowly missed out on key points.last_img read more
