Army Chaplain Alumni

Chuck Lowman's service to the Man Upstairs has taken him from Reno to remote villages in Africa and India to the battlefields in Iraq, where, as an Army captain, he served his fellow soldiers in the 1st Squadron, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment as the squadron chaplain.

The 1995 Galena High School graduate spent 15 months in Iraq working as the spiritual adviser to about 1,000 troops before returning earlier this year. He received a Bronze Star for "exceptionally meritorious service."

Lowman, 32, trained alongside the troops as they prepared for deployment and accompanied them into the war zone, where he was far more than a spiritual adviser.

His importance to the soldiers can be better told through the words of the squadron commander, who recommended Lowman for the medal:

"While diligently providing religious support to soldiers as a part of his routine duties as a chaplain, Capt. Lowman acted as the 'first line' professional counselor for all matters of personal nature for troopers in the squadron. Chaplain Lowman also shouldered the task of administering various command climate surveys, identifying 'at-risk' troopers and managing soldier/family issues during deployment."
