To Mikey Weinstein,

I appreciate your quick response to my email, especially as it is Father’s Day weekend. When I called you, you were instantly supportive of me and confirmed that I had been wronged. A civilian teacher/motivational speaker of a mandatory class about the Wounded Warrior Project had endorsed his faith, Christianity, which is completely out of line. These endorsements when referencing his recovery from struggles as a Wounded Warrior were sayings like “My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” and “It all starts with Him.” 
I was given different options for how to progress, including going to my local EO representative, IG, or using the MRFF itself. I plan to research each option to decide what will be most attuned to my situation.
You also acknowledged my desire to be confidential and respected it. This was a big thing for me, as my struggles are about my Behavioral Health, including how religion has had a negative impact on my life. As a child, I was taught Fundamentalist Christian values. When I hear someone preach their ideology, it creates a visceral reaction in me and I shut down. The discreetness will reduce my stress of the situation and is greatly appreciated.
I truly just wanted to thank you for your efforts to support the thousands of Servicemembers whose rights are being violated by leaders and teachers that decide to shill their personal beliefs to their subordinates.
