As a Battalion Chaplain in Iraq, I attended every convoy briefing and provided the final pre-convoy prayer for 12 months. Soldiers appreciated the prayers and the time we spend with them before they went out on a dangerous night convoy. Occasionally I went with them and they felt they had God with them. But on the nights that I could not go with them (there were many), soldiers always asked for things from my Chapel, tha had religious significance. I often gave them bibles, tokens with scriptures in them or simply a prayer, but when Operation Bandanas came around, I could not keep the bandanas in stock long enough to let the troops know I had some. Soldiers appreiciated the praticality of the bandanas in the dessert,but more importantly, the scripture inscribed. Every time I went to a convoy briefing before they got ready to go out, i would see troops wearing their bandanas, some under their helmet and others would have it in their pockets. What a blessing!!
