  • They don't call out to anyone. They may let few a couple of curse words like "Oh F*&^" but they don't pray. Haven't you ever heard of Jeremy Hall? Military atheist in several do or die situations that ended up being harassed by his peers and superiors because he would not pray to God or "thank god for keeping him safe".
    Chances are your husband has actually met several atheists while serving, he just didn't know they were atheists as they stuck to doing their job.

  • I've come across plenty during my time in the military because I processed records. I even had "no religious preference" on my dog tags and in my service record and CHCS. Talking about religion in the workplace was and is a still big no no.

  • I served and I am an atheist. My husband also served and is an atheist. Many of my friends who are still serving are atheists. There's a lot of us. We just don't talk about it while on duty because well, there's more important stuff to worry about.

  • It was a curious question, but since you asked, I wondered who they call out to if and when they are ever in a do or die situation. I'm not bashing them to each his own, but I've always wondered. I never usually talk politics are religion just because it usually ends up in a heated debate, or someone is offended. It's a good place to ask abt in ref to the military IMO just bec of WAR.
