Can You Serve in the Military without Serving God?

Hosted by

"God and Country" is a familiar phrase in the US military. But what about service members who don't believe in God? Last month, the Army said soldiers could formerly designate themselves as "humanists." But the Navy has just denied the application of a "humanist" chaplain. That's one victory and one loss for Jason Torpy, a graduate of West Point who served in Iraq in 2003 and 2004. Now he's the full-time President of the Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers.
