Video: The Belgian Military Chaplain
Belgian Armed Forces chaplain Tonny Versluys takes every opportunity he can to visit troops in the field. In his role as chaplain he provides moral support, helps soldiers with welfare matters and is always ready to listen and talk, as well as provide religious services when requested.
We follow Tonny as he visits Belgian troops on a training exercise in Lithuania, sharing food and chatting to soldiers in their spare time.
The soldiers in the video are from the First Carabiniers Prins Boudewijn - Grenadiers of the Land Component of the Belgian Armed Forces. The unit spent six months in Lithuania, deployed with NATO’s enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) Battlegroup.
