INFORMATION AND REFERRAL ASSISTANCE
Providing pastoral counseling and
referral assistance to service members
and their families is one of the major
duties of the Navy chaplain. When
members of the naval service or their
families experience problems, frequently
the advice most often valued is that of
the chaplain. (See figure 5-1.) Whether
at sea, or on an unaccompanied tour,
every effort is made to provide naval
personnel access to a Navy chaplain.
