A couple of years ago, Lackland Air Force Base in Texas began allowing Humanists a chance to gather on their own in lieu of attending church services during Air Force Basic Training.
Given that the previous alternative to going to church used to be staying back and cleaning the dorms, this was a welcome third option.
There were only 5 attendees when the alternative program got started.
They hit a new record over the past weekend with an astonishing 270 trainees and airmen attending a meeting.
The 270 attendees include trainees, graduates, and their families.
