Military Religious Freedom Foundation supports Rock Beyond Belief

2010 Nobel Peace Prize nominated group, Military Religious Freedom Foundation has been standing up for the rights of the oppressed service members of the United States, both religious and secular, for years now. MRFF's contributions to soldiers everywhere are misleadingly public. The real truth is that most of the fighting is done behind the scenes, not to say that they haven't picked a public fight or two.The story of SPC Jeremy Hall should be enough to convince anyone that the need for an … [Read more...]
