Dear Mr Weinstein of the MRFF,

On behalf of all 14 of us you helped on (weekday name withheld) of last week we wanted to say thank you to you and the MRFF for having our totally having our six.

We are all (service branch designation withheld) assigned to (name of military installation withheld) and with the (various levels of military unit designations all withheld).

Our (unit commander designation withheld) had been holding a weekly duty status and assignment meeting as always. This meeting is always mandatory. But at the end of it this time he literally ordered us all down to our freaking knees. And then ordered us to all hold hands as he said a special prayer. He raised his voice as he prayed to  “Jesus Christ The Living Savior” to make sure that the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii would stop erupting. Seriously, right? Not the first time he’s done this religion deal on us.

But this was so jacked up we couldn’t believe it this time. We knew this was wrong the moment the did it. Actually all 14 of us who reached out to you are Christians. But many in our unit are not. You could see the shock and hurt on their faces. But what are we supposed to do? He’s the (unit commander designation withheld).

My older sister came to the MRFF back in 2012 when she had same type of issues while serving in the Air Force at (name withheld) AFB in (state withheld). I called her right away after this Hawaii volcano prayer happened. And she said to call you and gave me your number which she says she always keeps in her phone. I did not expect you to answer it when I called you maybe 2 minutes after talking to my sister. You told me that you knew what to do.

All of us wanted you to try to fix this but none of us wanted our names used. If our names came out we would be viewed as narcs in our unit by many who support our (unit commander designation withheld).

Anyways after you spoke to our (superior unit commander’s designation, name and rank withheld) it all got fixed. Next day later our volcano praying (unit commander designation withheld) got called into the (superior unit commander’s designation withheld) office and got hit with some pretty serious duke nukem ass kickery we heard. Our (Senior NCO’s unit designation) was there and told us all about it. Seems our (unit commander designation withheld) even tried to tell his boss that the prayer had been “voluntary”. Total lie! He has not apologized but we heard he got some nasty paper from the (superior unit commander’s designation withheld) on this whole deal.

Mr. Weinstein we all really appreciate what you did here to stop this violation of our constitution rights. Until it happens to you you just don’t get how bad it is. Now my sister and I both have stories to tell about how the MRFF helped us.

From all of us here at (installation name withheld) Bravo Zulu!

(name, rank, title and unit name all withheld)
