RE: The Military Atheists!
you don't HAVE to go to church... or at least a Christian one.

They also offer Wiccan Buddhist and Unitarian... possibly even a humanist church now.

Generally if you have no religious beliefs they will simply leave you alone while everyone goes to church.

Your MTI (or drill sargent) might make you a chapel guide or worker... mine seemed to think it was funny both chapel guides in my flight were atheists... I guess we were because we were non biased.

Can someone please answer my question?
For what are you fighting?

Fighting is part of the job, that's all. Most of us want a better world and try to help this way. But in no way do we just want to kill people for the fun of it.

I just do it for all the extra advantages I get. Got my college degree, loads of cash, time off, hot chicks that like the uniform...

Ok, I've seen some bad shit happen, but that never made me want to pray. On the contrary, when I see misery in the world, it just proves to me that there is no such thing as a loving God. One of my first posts was about my chaplain and how I hated the guy.

Been serving for 9 years now. Still don't regret it.

RE: The Military Atheists!
Most of us military folks are 'fighting' for anything. People seem to think we join on noble political reasons, but usually because it's a job you can get straight out of high school with no prior training with good pay and great benefits. Not a bad deal.

Also, the majority of military jobs do not see 'combat'. I just fix airplanes, the most combat I see is the mortars that occasionally hit base or the fucking goat farmers throwing rocks... yeah like it's my fault your little shitty country openly harbors terrorists... between you and me, Achmed, I would never set foot into this country again...

That's the general draw... and in the US you get the GI bill, which pays for your college while in service and gives you a hefty sum when you get out of the service.

Funny enough I knew a guy that got really hurt by one of those damn rocks, hit in the face...

I'm pretty glad I'm just reserves now... but now I have to go to the S.Korea every year... to the DMZ... that place is a mess as well. My poor husband is going for some exercise some day (can't say when or where OPSEC my good friends).
