Regardless of faith, did they not give their oath to defend the US from all enemies, both foreign and domestic? Is it the same oath of allegiance that I said in 1984? If faith is an issue and they can't be trusted to fight for the US, then they should not be able to enlist in the US armed forces! Soldiers need to be able to rely on soldier next to them in matters that are life and death. They shouldn't have to worry about being shot in the back by a soldier in the same uniform!

I'd like to add that if they aren't willing to stand up and fight for our country because of their beliefs, then they shouldn't be allowed to live in America and reap all the benefits they steal from our great country! I'd hate to have to keep looking over my shoulder,also, to see if I'm a target,.......by my fellow soldier!
