Air National Guard Veteran to MRFF: “Thank you MRFF, for defending my freedom, and thank you to the people who support the MRFF, for keeping them in the fight!”

To the MRFF
 
I’m a veteran of the Air National Guard and I’ve served both in an Active Duty capacity while enlisted, and I’ve worked alongside the troops as a civilian contractor and GS employee since leaving the service. Both when I served domestically, and when I supported the troops overseas, the MRFF has proved a steadfast defender of the religious liberty of myself and my peers. On multiple occasions, the MRFF has stepped in to ensure that command structures where I served maintain religious neutrality, so that servicemembers and contractors of all faiths and non-faith traditions feel the camaraderie that comes from a workplace free of discrimination or preference. 
 
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that all members of the United States Armed Forces fully receive the Constitutional guarantees of religious freedom to which they and all Americans are entitled by virtue of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. That’s their mission statement, and they fulfill it masterfully. But they do more than that.
 
The MRFF does not require that the clients they represent – the majority of whom are Christians themselves – donate or pay for their services. The MRFF pursues its mission and operations separately, and it shows in the attention and service they provide. When the MRFF works with you as a client, you are their singular focus, and they are concerned about ensuring religious liberty first and foremost.
 
I’ve been lucky, financially, and I’ve tried to give back to society by donating to charitable causes and non-profit organizations. The MRFF in particular has been an organization I’m happy to dig deep for. Unlike any other organization I’ve supported, the MRFF “shows the receipts.” No other organization so regularly shows exactly what they are doing, on individual and national scales. Not a week – and sometimes day – goes by that I don’t see an email update about. what the MRFF is pursuing. Oftentimes the updates come with an excited postscript, and sometimes late into the night – a clear sign the update was written by Mikey Weinstein, MRFF’s tirelessly intrepid leader.
 
COVID has been hard on all of us, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say that my charitable giving has diminished. But if you have the wiggle room to buttress the wall of separation between church and state, while the forces of Christian Nationalism are challenging the uniquely secular Constitution of America in every state, I urge you to support MRFF. The MRFF defends against the threats to our troops by overzealous, often relentless proselytizers so they can focus on defending you. And more than any other NPO you can support, the MRFF will show you what you, and our troops, are getting for your donation. 
 
Thank you MRFF, for defending my freedom, and thank you to the people who support the MRFF, for keeping them in the fight!
