I am a USAF fighter pilot stationed here at Shaw AFB, SC. I am also one of the MRFF clients who asked for help in the matter of the nativity scene erected at Memorial Lake here on base in violation of DoD and USAF regs.

My spouse and I and a number of others (we’re all practicing Christians of some type or another) who are clients of the MRFF in my Fighter Sq. just wanted to say thank you for stepping up here. The level of ignorance about religious matters and the regs and even the Constitution is just so hard to believe here in the 20th Fighter Wing. Not much better in other places I’ve been stationed. If you try to say something you will be ostracized and it will stick and follow you all over the Air Force. We are seeing you all really take the heat for stepping up for us. It is appreciated so much. Sorry they are jacking you up for doing the right thing. We are all telling our kids and families what you have done for us. Hard for the young ones to understand but some do.

We’ve just been told that the “new and improved” Nativity display will be going up on the base chapel grounds at noon today. About an hour from now. That’s where it should always have been. We all have you heroes at the MRFF to thank for that happening.

Please do not use my contact information but the rest of this is ok to go out.

Thank you for being Shaw’s best Wingman, MRFF!

    We will all have an accounting at the end of our lives…just glad I am good with God.

    Dare you say the same?

    “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:26).

    Best of luck with that…

    Is it just me, or does the fact that this “inbox post” isn’t signed by anyone make it seem like a pathetic attempt to make someone, anyone, believe that even one person supported what this Mr. Weinstein accomplished? I mean seriously, your mom could have written it and nobody could possibly know. It’s weak at best.

    Martin. I can vouch for the fighter pilot’s story. I know form personal experience that Mikey works for military clients and all he asks in return is for a thank you email. If you knew the military culture, you would understand why it is necessary to remove identifying information. Realize that this fighter pilot puts his life on the line for our freedoms every day, and all he asks for in exchange is the guarantee of his basic constitutional rights. Is that too much to ask?
