After his ordination, he served the US Military Academy, West Point, NY, until his return to active duty. While assigned to the Chief of Chaplains Office, he provided weekly liturgical services at the US Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD. While with the Coast Guard in Alaska, he volunteered as priest-in-charge of Saint Nicholas Church, Juneau, from which he established a mission for Bosnian Serb refugees in nearby Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada. He was attached to Saint Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church, Newport, RI, during War College and, most recently, to Our Lady of Iveron Russian Orthodox Church, Honolulu, HI. He enjoyed a long tenure as pastor of Saint John the Forerunner Chapel, Camp Pendleton, CA, from 1986 to 1988, and again from 1999 until 2013.

After the fall of communism, he participated in early efforts to help reestablish chaplaincies in the former Eastern Bloc. In 1992, he participated in combined exercises with the Russian Northern Fleet and celebrated Orthodox services on their base near Murmansk. He later made significant inroads with the Russian Naval Border Guard in its exchanges with the US Coast Guard in Alaska. He provided liturgical services to the forces of Bulgaria, Romania, Estonia, Ukraine, and the Republic of Georgia deployed in the Global War on Terrorism. He also kept to an ambitious circuit to serve Orthodox Christian faithful among our own forces. His wartime service includes the liberation of Iraq, the battle for Fallujah, and support of several campaigns in Afghanistan.

In Alaska, his official military travel to cutters and stations throughout the state allowed him access to Orthodox villages long without priests. He helped organize humanitarian missions to these remote communities and helped bridge the gap between cultures. These efforts aided government reconciliation with native communities harmed during the Aleutian campaign of World War II and incidents that occurred in the 19th century.

In 1976, a young Marine sergeant named Jerome Cwiklinski was working his first Christmas as a guard at the U.S. Embassy in Austria. Vienna may be one of the most picturesque places you could spend Christmas, but Cwiklinski wouldn't have known it. He was miserable, stuck in a cold, lonely guard post without so much as a strand of tinsel in sight.
Now one of the Navy's top chaplains, he looks back on that Christmas as one of his best ever.
"People say they want to cut through the tinsel and glitter to get to the real meaning of the season," says now-Capt. Cwiklinski. "The military can help you do that because there are times when you are stationed in places where it just doesn't exist."
Embrace those moments, he says.
Although chaplains come from particular denominations, part of their job is to help troops and their families connect with what works for them, says Cwiklinski, an Orthodox priest and force chaplain for U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific.
"We are a referral resource," he says. "It sometimes helps to talk that out with their chaplain, to tell them, 'This is what I'm used to - this is what we did back home.' Just having those conversations can help them embrace whatever is available."
If you're deployed, it may not be much, but a chaplain may be able to connect you with others from your faith tradition whom you aren't aware of. If nothing else, consider bringing a touchstone of your faith - anything from prayer books to a Bible - that will help you connect to the spiritual side of the holiday season on your own. At larger installations, even downrange, there's often no shortage of faith groups that might be a good fit for you, Cwiklinski says.
