First Buddhist Army Chaplain
Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) is boasting this afternoon that the first Buddhist Army Chaplain is from Tennessee.
And wouldn't you know, a "Buddhist Military Sangha" blog I just stumbled into has further info.
I linked to a story about an Asian American Buddhist serving in Afghanistan about three years ago: here.
Of course, joining the military had been a dream of mine earlier on, and though I've been a bit bitter about being rejected, I do like to see stories like this from time to time.
