Default The USAF welcomes witches

"When I first arrived here, Earth-centered cadets didn't have anywhere to call home," said Sgt. Robert Longcrier, the lay leader of the neo-pagan groups on base.
"Now, they meet every Monday night, they get to go on retreats, and they have a stone circle.""

The Air Force has "Earth Centered cadets....."

Shouldn't they be "Sky centered"?! They ARE a part of the Air Force.

Earth centered.......that would be more of an Army druid-wiccan-kinda person.

ya know?!?

We had these guys in the Army as far back as 1995. One of my roommates in Ft. Hood was a Wiccan as was his "wife" (they got married in some tree ceremony). I was actually stationed alongside several of them during a couple of different duty stations. When I was in Korea, we even had a guy who walked around in a cape during his off duty hours.

As far as I can remember, they were never more than slugs as soldiers. Out of shape, no motivation, always going on sick call, just overall very poor quality military personnel.

We had a Wiccan guy when I was in Germany who just sat in his room weaving baskets. He ended up getting kicked out for consistently being late to work.

Why these people join the military is beyond me.

A buddy of mine in high school band (clarinet player) was dating a flute player who said she was Wiccan. She brought in her "wand", which I pointed out looked suspiciously like a twig off a Paradise Tree. She told me that any piece of wood could be a wand as long as you "anoint it with Olive Oil". Next band period, I took my buddy's clarinet, put a coupla drops of oil on it & asked her to cast a spell. She was not amused.

I still haven't figured out how some of them slide through basic training.
