“Bible on Missing Man Table at Defense Health Agency” – U.S. Army Officer’s Sincere Thank You to MRFF

Mikey,

 
I was really surprised to see your reply to my initial email requesting MRFF’s help less than 2 minutes (seriously!) after I hit the send button today on another matter where we need MRFF. Thank you for offering to bring the bible on the “missing man table”.to the attention of the leadership at DHA.
 
I’ve been a supporter of MRFF for a while now. I had finished reading your book, “With God on Our Side” on the airplane about 2 hours before we touched down at Ft Campbell on our redeployment from an extended tour in Iraq. It was dark, cold, and rainy when we walked down the jet’s stairs to shake hands with a 1- or 2- star general. We then dropped our gear, and got into a mandatory formation to head into the hangar where all the families were. Still in formation, we were “treated” to a completely mandatory Christian talk (? sermon) by the Division Chaplain. All this just a few hours after reading in your book how this shouldn’t be happening in our military. I was pretty upset about it, but was stuck in formation and couldn’t go anywhere.
 
I started supporting MRFF shortly after that.
 
Thanks again for what you and MRFF do. No other organization can or will do what MRFF does to fight this type of bigotry in the military ranks. It’s uncomfortable to put up with (at best) and difficult or impossible to fight it from within the chain of command. 
 
Take care.
