MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - It hasn't happened in years, but the 167th Airlift Wing now has two chaplains to serve the spiritual needs of airmen on base. First Lt. Jonathan W. Yost delivered his first chapel service recently in the base's auditorium. Maj. David Reynolds, the wing's chaplain, is deployed to Germany. A native of Berkeley Springs, W.Va., Yost is no stranger to the Martinsburg air base. His father, Senior Master Sgt. Thomas Yost was a supervisor on the local flight line and retired from the West Virginia Air National Guard after serving more than three decades.

HAGERSTOWN -- When former Brook Lane chaplain Deryl Fleming left last February after 16 years at the post, he said he wanted to experience a more traditional congregation. Now his replacement, Chaplain Ron Shank, is doing just the opposite. After 24 years as youth pastor at Maranatha Brethren Church in Hagerstown, Shank has taken on the rather unique congregation at Brook Lane - patients, youth and staff. "This is my first venue of this kind," Shank said. "The people I minister to here are constantly changing.

LEITERSBURG - More than 30 years after fighting his last fire, one of the founding members of the Leitersburg Volunteer Fire Co. climbed aboard a firetruck Sunday for a nostalgic ride around the block. "Yep, this brings back memories," said Robert W. Blair, 83, who was a driver for the company for 15 years and still serves as its chaplain. Of course, many things have changed since Blair's firefighting days, including the trucks. When the company was founded in 1956, it purchased a used 1936 Chevrolet pumper from the Blue Ridge Fire Co. Blair also remembers driving a 1944 Hahn tanker and a 1963 Chevrolet Howe pumper.

LEITERSBURG - After 16 years as chaplain at Brook Lane, Deryl Fleming is trading his rather unique "congregation" for a more traditional one in Burke, Va. "One of the good differences being a chaplain in a hospital setting is that you are no longer the CEO, like the pastor is of a church," Fleming said. "If there was an emergency at Brook Lane, they'd call CEO Lynn Rushing or the doctors, not me. " Before working at Brook Lane, Fleming was pastor of a church for 28 years where he was on call around the clock.

SAINT JAMES - When the Rev. Todd FitzGerald applied for the job of chaplain at Saint James School, the Louisiana native admits he was unfamiliar with the concept of an Episcopalian boarding school. In the three years he's been at Saint James, Father FitzGerald, as he's known to the students, has grown to love the school and Washington County. "We never thought in a million years God would lead us to Maryland, let alone a boarding school. This certainly feels like a wonderful blessing to be here," FitzGerald said.
