Michael L. “Mikey” Weinstein, a former judge advocate general in the U.S. Air Force, founded the Military Religious Freedom Foundation to address problems of religious establishment in the country’s military.

Weinstein, a graduate of the Air Force Academy, is author of With God on Our Side: One Man’s War Against an Evangelical Coup in America’s Military.
