After five weeks of training in Alabama, with only prepacked kosher ready-made meals to eat, last week Seattle-based Chabad Lubavitch Rabbi Elie Estrin became the first Chabad officer in the history of the United States Air Force.
We salute Rabbi Elie Estrin, the first bearded chaplain in the US Air Force, on being promoted to Captain at a graduation ceremony at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama.
He will be stationed at McChord Air Force Base, south of Seattle, WA.
