ARE GOVERNMENT RULES against proselytizing preventing military chaplains from praying in accordance with their faiths? Or are chaplains violating the Constitution, viewing troops as "low-hanging fruit," ripe for conversion? A new documentary, Chaplains Under Fire, goes behind the contradictory headlines to the heart of what chaplains do and the church-state tensions they face.

Filmmakers Lee Lawrence and Terry Nickelson spent three months with military units in Iraq and Afghanistan. "We selected stories illustrating the stresses that troops experience," Mr. Nickelson says, "from the boredom of routine duties to the rush of night patrols, and the guilt-laced grief over losing a buddy in combat or to suicide."
