I’m active duty US Air Force, 31 yrs old. I’m just on my way into med school, but my long term goals are 20+ yrs in service, leaving much time to become a deacon. I imagine about 8 years until I can start courses, and I have no idea where to begin. My questions are:
*Which diocese would I go through being in the military?
Are there distance-learning programs for becoming a deacon?
What can I do in the coming years to prepare?
Can I be a physician AND a deacon at the base I am stationed?*
Any inputs at all would help. Much thanks. God bless.
