Who my DH needs to talk to in order to get his 'religion' on his dogtags changed?
He is currently in AIT and when he processed in, he stated "Agnostic" for his 'religion' but I don't think they have that in the system. He said the guy looked at him weird, so he just said "none". The processor called him a heathen (funny for those of you who know what a heathen actually is..lol) They put "Christian, Non-denominational" instead. He is stationed in the south, so he doesn't really want to cause a fuss, but he really doesn't want the Christian label on his tags.
We don't really know what personnel to contact about this so any info would be helpful. Thanks!

He needs to go see personal management and make sure to change it on his records. There are many who serve in the military who are not Christian and have it in their records as well as their dog tags. The person who called him a name should have been reported. That is harassment and it will not be tolerated. Any type of harassment he receives should be reported immediately.

There are Chaplin's that will do rites for even Pagans. When we send pagan ritual supplies to the troops in Iraq we use the local base Chaplin as a POC. He makes sure to get it to the troops. We get thank you cards all the time from our Pagans serving there country. Just wanted to let you know that the military has all kinds of people serving. Yea I agree with the other anon. That person who called him a name should have gotten a letter of counselling. Have him let his First Sergent know what is going on.
