13 Jan 2012 | Sgt. Rachael K. A. Moore

There isn’t a better way to find out how things are going than taking a trip and seeing for yourself.

The Chaplain of the Marine Corps did just that.

Rear Adm. Margaret Kibben, the Chaplain of the Marine Corps, came to Camp Lejeune, N.C., Jan. 10, to meet with Marine and Navy leaders, chaplains and religious program specialists.

“It was a great visit,” expressed Navy Capt. Gregory N. Todd, the 2nd Marine Logistics Group chaplain. “Chaplain Kibben is extremely encouraging every time she comes to Camp Lejeune. She lets us know she appreciates our hard work and inspires us to greater professionalism.”

During her visit, Kibben spent most of her time learning about the different programs available aboard Camp Lejeune, as well as spreading her knowledge and experience to junior chaplains and religious program specialists.

“One of the core capabilities for chaplains is to advise leaders on issues relating to morals, ethics, spiritual well-being and morale,” Todd explained. “The Chaplain of the Marine Corps provides this capability to Commandant and these visits allow her to get a first-hand perspective for her advising role which benefits all Marines and sailors.”
