← Fault Lines - Religion in the military

I retired from the US Air Force 4 years ago, having served 20 years. Maybe things have changed drastically, but I don't recall anything like this in my experience. On a typical Sunday at the various Middle-East deployed locations, you'd see about as many people in the rec center or gym as you would in the base chapel. Since I'm from the South (Texas, Arkansas) I've seen greater religiosity among the civilian world than in the Air Force, which is a cross section of the whole USA.
