One thing makes me wonder how Americans can sit there and throw the blame game. He joined the Army damn knowing what is asked of him when the Government calls him to duty but now he cry's foul when he doesn't want to believe in GOD. The Army has religious values and the servicemen and servicewomen look into the services for comfort and spiritual needs and you have this idiot trying to cry because his non-believing beliefs.
It's one of the most important factors left in being an American is that of Faith..........Kick his sorry --- out of the Army and let him join the non-believer's....

Wow, what an ignorant S.O.B. you are. You have no idea how many Atheists and non-believers have served or are serving in the military, nor do you have any idea how many sacrificed their lives for this country. My grandfather was an Air Force Surgeon. He was there when US troops liberated the German death camp of Auschwitz. He was an Atheist. Patriotism and a sense of duty have nothing to do with religion or spiritual fantasies.

WOW I know I am not the brightest pencil in the box but you take the cake. I do know that there is non-believers in the ranks but you don't see them pushing their concepts on others. The non-believers that I do know in the ranks believe in respecting other peoples rights in believing since that is a way of release the pain. The one's that I know has told me that the right thing would not to shake the priciples in believing for others. And I am proud of your Father for Serving I don't think he threw his Atheist veiws on anyone.
