U.S. Army military chaplains, who travel the battlefields across Afghanistan, provide a backbone of support for thousands of soldiers struggling with the difficulties of war and yearlong deployments away from home.

Photojournalist John Moore recently followed Army chaplains Carl Subler and Gary Lewis as they ministered to the troops.

Lewis has spent countless hours counseling grieving soldiers in 1st Battalion, 17th Infantry, which has suffered 21 fatalities since its deployment last summer, the most of any U.S. Army battalion during the Afghan war.
