Spiritual Fitness “not meant to endorse religion” VS Army’s own videos

These videos may just disappear soon. Grab them while they're hot!

Reverend: “What does the military put on gravestones of atheists, a thumbs-down?”

Faith itself is the tree without roots. It’s grounded in nothing.

Last week, I brought you a video from Chaplain COL Lembke, referring to Spiritual Fitness. In it, he claimed that, "Life without faith is like a tree without roots".
