Someone forgot to notify the Dept. of Defense that Scientology is the world's coolest religion - 2017-04-25
In October 1983 Sylvia Dewall joined the U.S. Air Force. And when you join the armed forces in this country, you are asked to identify your religion for your dog tags.
Since the age of 13, Sylvia had been a Scientologist. And that's what she said when she was asked. "The recruiter had never heard about it," she says. And so the recruiter put "NRP" as her religion, for "No Religious Preference."
We asked her about that because, once again Scientology and the military has come up in the news. Previously, we told you that the VA doesn't recognize Scientology when it comes to putting symbols on the grave markers of veterans. And now, the Department of Defense itself has slighted Scientology.
