December 18, 2013 – Sectarian Religious Display at GTMO is Relocated to Base Chapel

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation received an email on Monday night December 16, 2013 signed by 18 active-duty service members protesting the Nativity scenes set up at the Guantanamo’s Gold Hill and Seaside galleys. After being contacted by MRFF, Capt. J.R. Nettleton, commander of GTMO, moved two Nativity scenes from U.S. troops’ cafeterias to the base chapel on 12/18/2013. “The spirit of the Navy’s policy on this is, if it’s religious, it goes to the chapel,” Capt. Nettleton told the Miami Herald after a day of controversy. “It’s more appropriate there.”
