My friend, Rabbi Ilan Ginian has recently been commissioned as a full Chaplain, CH (1LT), for the U.S. Army. Rabbi Lt. Ginian begins basic training this summer and has been stationed with the the 101st signal brigade in Yonkers, NY.
While Rabbi Ginian may be new to the U.S. military, his Grandfather is a well decorated WWII veteran and his great-grandfather was a WWI veteran. Yasher koach and G-d Bless the U.S.A.!
