 Team Minot welcomed Chaplain Lt. Col. Dallas Little as he was appointed as the Wing Chaplain at Minot Air Force Base, Sept. 13, 2022. 

            Global Strike Command Chaplain, Col. David Kelley, presided over the ceremony, one of few conducted Air Force wide and the first ever at Minot AFB.  The ceremony was attended by Col. Daniel Hoadley, 5th Bomb Wing commander, Col. Kenneth McGhee, 91st Missile Wing commander, and several group and squadron commanders.

            “The Air Force asks the Wing Chaplain to lead a unique team of professionals that provide a capability to commanders, ‘Big A’ Airmen and their families that no other organization provides,” said Kelley.

The ceremony consisted of bestowing a Crook and Stole to the incumbent Wing Chaplain to symbolize the responsibility they now hold.

“[The Crook and Stole] are practical tools, tools of service,” said Little.

“They’re tools that give a burden of leadership to the people they’re bestowed upon, and I am deeply thankful for the great cloud of witnesses that are with me as I take up the mantle of this position.”

Air Force chaplains provide a wide variety of services to Airmen and their families, including spiritual care and the opportunity to exercise their constitutional right to freedom of religion.
