On this V-E Day, Marc LiVecche connected with Col. Timothy Mallard, Command Chaplain for U.S. Army Europe, to discuss the seventy-fifth anniversary of Nazi Germany’s surrender and its impact on the US profession of arms. Col. Mallard discusses the meaning of this event both to himself personally and to the larger U.S. army.

LiVecche and Col. Mallard then discuss the legacy and witness of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Christian who stood up to Hitler in the face of Nazi Germany. They also discuss just war and peace, the role of chaplains in the U.S. army, and the spiritual care of warfighters.
