Many members within the Chaplaincy don’t actually know how bad it is for us non-believers (or quite simply don’t care because we’re all “going to hell” anyway). This particular chaplain, Rabbi Elson, is known as the “Marine’s Rabbi.” He had made waves within the military representing the Jewish faith and helping to ensure that those of his minority faith receive the care they deserve. When he met with this Marine Pilot, he was shocked at the fear felt from atheists and freethinkers in the military. The Marine refused to meet Rabbi Elson in uniform or to use their last name. So the meeting was conducted on a first-name basis and shattered the false perception of religious tolerance to this Chaplain.
