Remembering a selfless chaplain

Imagine being an observer of SINKEX 2016. A SINKEX is a Navy exercise in which a ship is deliberately sunk by being subjected to missiles and bombs until it slips beneath the waves to the bottom of the sea. SINKEX 2016 took place 117 nautical miles north of Guam on Sept. 13, 2016. The targeted ship sank after five hours and 22 missile hits. The vessel subjected to this tortuous end was the decommissioned USS Rentz.

‘Without a thought for self’

As Jesus prepared to voluntarily sacrifice his life that we might have life, he said to the disciples, “No one has greater love than this — that one lays down his life for his friends.” Following the example of Jesus, many others have given their lives in their service in God’s kingdom.
