My name is Dane Alexander Mettam and I am a Marine. I've been an atheist for a few years now. Right now I'm just training for my MOS as a 2847. I'm from Crown Point, Indiana. If anyone wants to know anything else about me just let me know and I'll answer.
Hi, I'm Tracy and I'm a Former Sailor. I joined the Navy in 1983 and retired in 2004. Now I'm a contractor working for Joint Forces Command. When I was enlisted I was an Electrician (EM) and then a Computer Hardware Technician (Data Systems Tech, DS.) After getting commissioned I was an Electronics, Communications and Informations Systems Officer. My best tour was aboard the USS MILIUS, an Aegis Destroyer, where I served as EMO (Electronics Material Officer), during the latest war. I'm from CA originally and now live in VA. I've been an Athiest for as long as I can remember.
Hey Sylvain. I'm a reserve infantry officer in BC, and was an NCM for a decade first. Have you ever had any problems about religion in the Regs? I know I haven't in the reserves. I make an obvious point to not bow my head for mess dinners or parades, etc, and within our small group of unit officers a few of us are atheists, one is agnostic, and the others don't talk about it. It's a very secular atmosphere, all things considered.
Hi, my name is Forrest Green and I was active duty Air Force for 5 years 6 months 3 days and now currently serving as a Traditional in the South Carolina Air National Guard at McEntire JNG base in Eastover, South Carolina.
Nom de plume is Larian LeQuella. My callsign is Lunk. USAF zero stationed at Eglin. Been in 19 years (since 1989), atheist the whole time (Well, my whole life really). I guess if you just go to me personal web page and blog, you'll learn all about me.
Been an atheist my whole life really (tried xtianity when I was like 15 and just couldn't stomach it, although it got me a bit of pussy, but that's another story!).
I'm Rob, I was a soldier atheist from '95 until '03 where I made the leap to bonafide Foxhole Atheist. I gave it all up in '05 when I realized the policy was kill all the muslims you want but thats it. C'mon can't I pop a few christians too? Joking of course, there were a hundred small reasons, none of which would cause me to get out by them selves, but added all up, it let me know that maybe I would be happier somewhere else, and I truly am.
As for my MOS, I was a 98G Russian/Serbo-Cro linguist and all around pain in the ass, just ask my soldiers ;)
Glad to talk to anyone and everyone out there so feel free to drop a line.

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.See More
