A story of reaching local and changing lives in Fort Polk, Louisiana with Army Chaplain Travis Dalsis

Soldiers face a unique set of challenges in their daily lives, often filled with hardships. But who can they turn to when they are overwhelmed or discouraged and need someone to listen? Chaplains walk alongside soldiers and go through the challenges and struggles they face every day. Chaplains are the calming presence that soldiers need when their lives can seem overwhelming.

Travis Dalsis is the epitome of what it means to be a chaplain. While he serves the 46th Engineer Battalion in Fort Polk, Louisiana, he pours his heart out to care for them, like the soldier he talks about in this video. He helps them understand they are not going through their struggles alone. He loves his soldiers, and above all else, he loves the Lord.
