"Chaplains Under Fire" explores the world of military chaplains through the lens of the uniformed men and women they serve. The film shows troops on combat missions who struggle with the loss of their friends through enemy fire or suicide and the effects of combat stress, multiple deployments, and family breakups. Chaplains help medical personnel who triage incoming casualties and minister to the dead and dying. The military chaplaincy has a built-in conflict, arising from being men and women of God as well as officers serving a secular government. "Chaplains" shows this behind-the-scenes inner tension through an onscreen debate between religious leaders, constitutional scholars, and representatives of chaplain endorsing agencies. Finally, chaplains sometimes succumb to the same stresses they look for in the troops over whom they watch, resulting in an alarming increase in PTSD and suicides. How do they protect themselves?
