August 01, 2009 | Ken Crawford

Chaplain Colonel Thomas G. Evans, Hillside-O'Malley member, was recently inducted to the highest chaplaincy office in Alaska. In his new role, he will be supervisory chaplain for all active duty Army chaplains in Alaska as well as dispatching chaplains to active duty.

Anchorage is the home of both the largest Army base, Fort Richardson, and the largest Air Force base, Elmendorf, in the United States. An extensive missile base in Ft. Greeley is also located outside of Fairbanks.

Evans served twice in Germany — from 1990–1994 and again from 2004–2007 — after which he transferred to Alaska. Evans holds a Master of Divinity degree from Andrews University and is an ordained Seventh-day Adventist pastor. Evans has had a distinguished career and has served with honor.
