As a retired Air Force Lieutenant General, allow me to express my gratitude for your courage, determination, and willingness to defend the religious freedom of all who serve our nation. Like you, I am a graduate of the Air Force Academy, where church attendance was once mandatory for all cadets. That violation of a constitutional right was ended by a court decision fifty years ago, but overt and covert attempts to religiously indoctrinate members of all services continue to this day, often by or with the support of senior commissioned and noncommissioned officers. Junior officers, enlisted, and cadets are often afraid to report these incidents because of potential repercussions, which is why the role of the MRFF is so important. Not only do you advocate for them, but you also bring their plight to the attention of those who can address and cease the violation of their rights. As a senior leader I welcomed MRFF’s intervention, and as a retiree, remain grateful for your untiring efforts to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
An Appreciative Lieutenant General, USAF (retired)
