At the Chapel Annex a Chaplain or Chaplain Assistant said Here put on this red nose. I said, What I don't want to put on that red nose, besides I'm in uniform. He handed a few to our group and what do you think happened next? Instant smiles. Now I am a Chaplain Assistant in the United States Air Force and as I put on my Red Nose I ask for your support.
