Thank You

Dear Mikey,

Several months ago I brought a struggling Soldier to you who was in need of help. This soldier was a chaplain’s assistant and had been assaulted by their chaplain. After the soldier reported the incident and following a founded investigation by the servicing Military Criminal Investigative Organization (MCIO), the chain of command and chaplain corps made the horrific, yet unfortunately unsurprising, decision to take no meaningful punitive action against the offending chaplain. Given how much you advocated for and helped me and my family, I knew that you were this soldier’s best hope for justice. Yet again, you absolutely delivered on your promise to help service members and their families. After several weeks of relentless advocacy on the part of you and your MRFF team, the chain of command was made to realize the egregiousness of their inaction and reversed their decision. The chaplain is now in the process of being eliminated from the military service, as he should be.  Without your diligence and tenacity, this Soldier would have absolutely not received justice and a yet another predatory chaplain would still be serving as a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

You frequently say to never expect the military to do the right thing, but we know with certainty that you always will-

Thank you,

Traci Moran

MRFF Representative at Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM), Tacoma, Washington
