Unit Ministry Team
Section II Religious Support Coverage
It is customary for RS to be expressed in terms of coverage.
Traditionally, coverage deals with the support a chaplain and
chaplain assistant provide to elements of the unit. RS coverage
consists of three types of RS: unit support, area support, and
Support provided to the unit to which the UMT is assigned or attached.
The team normally gives first priority to this mission.
Support provided to soldiers, members of other services, and
authorized civilians who are not a part of the team's unit but operate
within the supporting unit's area of operations (AO).
Denominational or faith group support.
Support provided to soldiers and other authorized persons belonging to
the chaplain's denomination or faith group. Limited assets affect the
availability of specific denominational or faith group support.
