Show some love

If you are on Facebook, throw a little love at the Atheists in Foxholes group. Started by USAF Staff Sergeant Chris Owen, this group is for support of Atheist troops, and welcomes civilian members.Also check out Operation Foxhole Atheists. From the website:

OFA started after hearing about several atheist soldiers in Iraq that attempted to start a group at their Forward Operating Base (FOB). They were harassed by a major that threatened to go after them with the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice). The soldiers did not violate the UCMJ at all. In fact, the major, by misusing his rank to harass the soldiers and try to trump their attempt to exercise their right in the military to the freedom of religion, violated the UCMJ directly.
