ACLU of Utah Investigates Sign at U.S. Army Recruiting Booth Implying Army Will Pay for Religious Missions

20 December 2004 Published in Legal Advocacy

On February 7, 2005, we were contacted by an attorney at the army recruiting office in Fort Knox, Kentucky who had been assigned to investigate a situation at an army recruting booth at a Utah high school. A sign posted at the booth implied the army would pay for religious missions. After his investigation, the attorney determined the sign was not appropriate and assured us that the army would stop using it.
