Greetings Mr. Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation,
First of all—thank you! Mr. Weinstein and the Foundation replied to my contact within two minutes of reaching out to them and I had the director himself on the phone within fifteen minutes. The service, professionalism, and class of Mr. Mikey Weinstein was above and beyond expectation. Mikey quickly addressed my major concerns regarding blowback and potential retaliation for my objecting to certain Army-approved training materials and helped me to think through my decision-making going forward. He provided sound advice and was keen to ensure that any legal advice he offered was advice that was also amenable to my needs and the needs of my family. He assured me that he would not use any of the material or content that I offered to him for anyone’s ends but my own and those specified by me. He was respectful, kind, and displayed a high level of concern for me and my well-being. He is truly a man looking out for his clients and the well-being of the community at large.
I have every assurance that, in the weeks to come, I will be well represented and advised in pursuing religious freedom and justice for all members of the US military and not just the majority-fundamentalists that make up the Chaplain Corps.
Thank you for all your guidance, wisdom and support. I would not have had the confidence to move forward on these matters without Mikey’s timely and caring support.
With sincerest thanks,
