Hello! My name is Paul I was an Army MP from 1967 to 1970 serving in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969. It is now forty years since I was deployed to southeast Asia and am still attempting to deal with the experience.
My first set, (Spring, 1990), were NRP, but when I went to the National Guard I had a new set made with "atheist".
I think the thing about most atheists having NRP on their tags is probably because the Army doesn't really tell you on that first, hectic day that it's even possible to get tags with "atheist" on.
Sherry Young, USAF 1976-1985. In as an E-1, out as an O-3. Mostly in mobile communications and radar. (AF's Army) Born in Ohio went to Ohio State. I live in Colorado now, 22 miles from Aspen and yes, I ski. Great husband, 21yo son in college in Orlando, 19yo daughter lives at home while she's going to community college and doing snowboard competitions. Two cool dogs. We're all atheists.
My name is Megan and I've been in the Army for 6 years now. I'm a 68k, medical laboratory technician. I was stationed in Germany for 3 1/2 years and it's my first year as a reservist. I haven't had too much trouble with being an atheist...a few patients mostly. My reserve unit doesn't really care so I'm happy with that. My husband and his Dad are also fox hole atheists, so that's really awesome.
I am a 68k in training. It's nice to meet someone else like me in my own mos ^.^ And yeah we don't go to foxholes but we do do the autopsys on those that have been there, remember that. Unless you're stationed in a place were they don't let the techs help.
