Never pass up a chance to sit down or relieve yourself. -old Apache saying

Monday, June 6, 2016


Used to be they could get away with saying shit like, "There are no atheists in foxholes." We knew it was bullshit then and it's bullshit now, and now we have the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers (MAAF) just in case some still doubt.

Providing community for atheists, humanists, and other nontheists in the military.


MAAF welcomes you. Nontheistic service members serve honorably throughout the world -- always have; always will. However, nontheists are the last unprotected minority. Humanists, atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, or other nontheists have a home with MAAF. MAAF provides a unique service in building community for atheists and humanists in the military. Whether you are a MAAFer or just looking for information, we are here to help.

Atheists in Foxholes, in Cockpits, and on Ships

MAAF maintains a roster of Atheists in Foxholes, just in case there are any rumors that we don't exist. The next time you hear someone repeat that old myth, just send them here to see how atheists have served honorably in combat - always have, always will.
If you are in Washington, DC, you may want to honor Atheists in Foxholes with a visit to Arlington Cemetery. MAAF provides a Cemetery Tour to known gravesites. Also consider visiting the Monument to Atheists in Foxholes in Talladega, AL.
MAAF has thousands of members, and this list is only a small subset of those who have chosen to speak out publicly. Member information is strictly confidential unless a member explicitly requests public recognition. If you would like to have your name listed here on this page, Join MAAF for a template and instructions.
