Chaplains Care for Navy Yard Personnel, Families

There are so many people who responded to the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Sept. 16, and continue to provide support to the families of the 12 victims and anyone who was affected on that day.

Navy chaplains from the National Capital Region, led by Commander, Navy Installations Command; Naval District of Washington, were among them.

Cmdr. Judy Malana, a chaplain assigned to the Office of Chief of Navy Chaplains at the Pentagon, was one of them.
