ABSTRACT

Religious Diversity in the U.S. Military [Version 2]   [open pdf - 530KB]

"American youth are more religiously diverse than their elders in terms of both nontraditional religions and nonbelieving, and religious diversity in the U.S military reflects the youthful composition of the forces. This issue paper (1) examines the variety of religious identifications reported by servicemembers by two different sources of data and (2) compares the diversity of religion found in the military with that found in the U.S. civilian population. It also considers the interaction between religious diversity and other demographic attributes of concern to the MLDC [Military Leadership Diversity Commission] and reflects on policy regarding accommodation of religious requests."
