Of course Ima keeping up with all this stuff-You betcha- My Notebook is now overflowing.
"Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, is allowing guards to say "have a blessed day" again after briefly stopping the greeting following a complaint from Mikey Weinstein, founder and CEO of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation."
"Weinstein told Air Force Times he had heard from 13 airmen and civilians, nine of whom are practicing Christians, about security forces airmen wishing them a "blessed day," but they were too afraid to report the matter. After a recent phone conversation, a security forces commander agreed to have airmen say "have a nice day" instead." What? This statement right here sounds like a bunch of BS!!!!!!
"But then the story that airmen had been told they could not use the word "blessed" went viral, and the Air Force took a second look at the matter."
"The Air Force takes any expressed concern over religious freedom very seriously," Robins Air Force base spokesman Roland Leach said in a statement Thursday. "Upon further review and consultation, the Air Force determined use of the phrase 'have a blessed day' as a greeting is consistent with Air Force standards and is not in violation of Air Force Instructions."
"The security forces airmen "portray a professional image that represents a base all of Middle Georgia can be proud of," the statement says.
