Well done! Since leaving the military in the early 90s, I have been shocked and saddened by this kind of behavior from commanding officers, all of whom have more than one faith of military member under their command. They seem to forget that they have a higher calling, to the constitution of the USA. While I don’t forego the idea of religious holidays being celebrated, there has been an ever-present push by Christian dominionists in uniform to place their faith ahead and above those who don’t share in it. You always impress with the speed of your response, this case in particular didn’t take very long to find its way to the deputy commander’s circular file.
No matter how many times it is explained to them, they continue to push the boundaries of what is allowed under DOD directives. One day I hope to see this kind of thing relegated to the dustbin of history, but today is not that day. Until it is, I’m grateful for the support that you provide to those least able to stand up to this kind of command overreach. Respectfully yours,
