Dear Ms. (name withheld),
I hope, given Mikey’s response, that you have a better understanding of the situation we’re dealing with. We all, of course, honor your son’s service and rue his loss. Such heartbreak is simply beyond our ability to imagine.
As was the case with your son, Ms. (name withheld), we all love freedom and we are dedicated to protecting religious freedom. There are, unfortunately, those with their own agenda who continue to mischaracterize our work, but please understand they are wrong, intentionally so, and we will continue to ensure that every woman and man in uniform will have their freedom of choice, whether religious or non-religious, protected by the MRFF.
Best to you.
Mike Farrell
(MRFF Board of Advisors)
