Speaker: U.S. Army Captain Ryan Jean
Topic: “Pro Deo Et Patria?”

“For God and Country?” The U.S. Military's Chaplain Corps routinely receives assistance from volunteer Lay Leaders of various faith groups in order to better support religious Free Exercise; these commonly include groups such as Pagan and Hindu, as there are typically no official Chaplains for them. Captain Jean and others are asking the military to recognize Humanism as a valid faith group and authorize Humanist Lay Leaders to step up and assist the notable minority with no faith. Captain Jean will share his experience as member of a unique group: a Military Officer lacking belief in a higher power.
