The Rev. Jake Morrill took the oath last week that commissions him to serve as a chaplain in the Army Reserve.
Morrill took the oath on June 9 before the congregation he serves at Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church.
The day was special for another reason: it was Morrill’s 10th anniversary of ordination.
He was ordained on June 9, 2003, in his home church, Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville.
In his new role, Morrill will hold the rank of Army Reserve captain.
