During my first week of basic training in the USAF in 1956 I had to attend a religious service of my choice and write to my parents.
Nobody in my flight thought it to be ridiculous.
Ditto.. 37 years ago this month I entered basic training at Lackland AFB. On Sundays we were encouraged to attend church. Somehow I’m not seeing how anyone was mentally, morally or socially damaged by it.
I suspect the time will come that attendance at Christian church services will be strongly discouraged in the military.
LOL, you are showing your age. I went to USAF basic training in 1967 and retired in 1987. I do not remember if we told to go to services, but most did. I think the Obamanites might have several things in mind, not least of which, is they are raising a military force, that will gladly and willfully use their hi tech weapons on American civilians, and enjoy it. They are right on schedule.
