About 20 years ago, an African Methodist Episcopal pastor placed his hands on a 7-year-old boy’s forehead. After a moment of reflection, he prophesied the boy would be a man of God. Today, that boy is now 2nd Lt. William Hammond, an Air Force chaplain candidate completing his Master of Divinity. The lieutenant is one of 27 candidates in a variety of religious faiths who are part of the Air Force Reserve Command Chaplain Candidate Intensive Internship June 24 to July 28, 2017.
