Soldiers Prayer?

There is a question simmering beneath the appearance of patriotic America: should troops be free to worship anywhere?

I agree. People in objection don't understand combat or living in the constant threat of being killed with a sense of duty to something larger than them. All the emotions around outrage over church over state, and anger over religious experiences that didn't make life easy for many, or fury over the system of religion influencing thought and action, melt away in war. What is left is the raw, bare bones of awareness of the fragility of life, and you start to pray sensing the beyond, like never before!
