[T]he Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) began an investigation into just how much money the DoD spends on promoting religion to military personnel and their families. What prompted this interest...was finding out what the DoD was spending on certain individual events and programs, such as the $125 million spent on the Army's Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program and its controversial "Spiritual Fitness" test, a mandatory test that must be taken by all soldiers.
Some DoD contract tax-dollar amounts.... Your tax dollars are work:
As Gore Vidal has noted, from 1958 until the start of the "war on terror," US defense spending had already topped $7 trillion ($7,000,000,000,000). Spending exploded after the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. We have a defense spending problem, and allocating taxpayers' money to religious training and entertainment in the military isn't just something Constitutionally problematic, it's something we literally can't afford.
