The Proximity Principle: Army Chaplains on the Fighting Line in Doctrine and History published on

Authored by U.S. Army Command and General Staff College

The first official U.S. Army chaplain doctrine appeared in 1926 and contained this guidance: “The duty of the chaplain lies with the men of his command who are on the fighting line.” This guidance reflected a principle of proximity-that is, chaplains minister wherever their soldiers are found, up to and including during direct ground combat.
