Thank you for coming through and voicing your concerns to the 2-508 PIR command. They did clarify some things, but then they made it worse.
The good news
I called Mrs. Belton – who is a very sweet woman, and military spouse (husband is a chaplain in the unit, but she is a civilian.) She even thanked me for a very interesting evening. I told her who exactly who I was and she and I hit it off quite well.
1) Soldiers are in fact banned from attending this event during the duty day, though this was not clear at first. The point of contact has invited camera’s to ‘check’). This is good.
2) This is not supposed to be endorsed by the command, and they have now ‘identified this as a problem’ (take a bow internet atheists – good job.)

They were the ones repeatedly violating laws, regulations, and even their own guidance.
Please speak for us!
They banned many of us, including soldiers in this unit!
