Confidentiality is number one for the Chaplain Corps and its team assigned to the 70th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing to ensure Airmen receive the proper support during critical times to help prevent suicide and other stressors in the ISRW. Chaplains can meet Airmen and keep their conversation confidential, and keeping that confidentiality is a privilege that shouldn’t be passed up during tough times.  (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt.

Prevention of suicide in an Intelligence community is something that chaplains and chaplain assistants with the 70th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing are adamant about. They don’t look to reach a few Airmen, but every single one to let Airmen know Chaplains are there whenever.
