Doonesbury's take on military chaplaincy

Meant to blog this earlier when I first noticed it, but I was pleased to see that Gary Trudeau's venerable Doonesbury cartoon strip had a reasonably accurate and sympathetic take on military chaplaincy. In this sequence, one of the regular characters, Melissa, is asked to see a chaplain when her buddy is afraid that an officer is harassing her.

You can find the whole sequence via the Doonesbury archive function on Slate.

Reminds me of an episode of Afghanada on CBC Radio 1 from, oh, probably around this time last year.
