A Christian Science Military Chaplain is a commissioned military officer, serving as a Protestant Chaplain in the United States Armed Forces. Many branch churches have non-military chaplain programs in local institutions (prisons, hospitals, etc). This is called prison and institutional work. Click here for a video from Southern California describing their work in prisons, jails, mental hospitals, and VA hospitals, or visit their website, Light in Prison.
