To the editor:

Your G-V chose Memorial Day to bash atheists in foxholes in Russell Lee’s column, the Carpenter’s Workshop. 

As a West Point graduate and Iraq veteran myself, I prove wrong Mr. Lee’s assertion and prove there are atheists in foxholes. 

A list of hundreds who display their names to show their service http://militaryatheists.org/atheists-in-foxholes/, thousands are among members of the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, and many others have served and defended our nation in every conflict the United States has had.

Your G-V may be an evangelical Christian publication whose mandate is to promote Christianity with bigoted Christian rhetoric. 

My hope though is that your mandate lies more with journalism, accuracy and honor all who serve.
