Letter to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel - Religious Policy in the Armed Forces

Letter

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released a letter they sent to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel requesting confirmation of the rights of members of the armed services to practice and share their faith. The letter is a response to recent media reports indicating potential changes to military regulations governing the discussion of religion by members of the military.

"Policies that prohibit the discussion of religious matters by military members, " they write, "could create a chilling effect on members of the armed services of any faith and have an adverse effect on recruitment and retention efforts and the morale of our troops."
