Military Headline News – Rick Rogers

 There’s a saying that there are no atheists in foxholes. Apparently there won’t be any in the military’s chaplain corps either.
Congressional lawmakers defeated an amendment to provide atheists serving in the military with chaplains.
 No more vehicle decals needed to get on Navy installations.
Starting next month, the Navy joins the Army and Air Force in doing away with the windshield displays. ID cards, however, will still be checked at the gate.
A House committee has voted to bar commanders from overturning convictions in rape and sexual assault cases.
The bill also requires those found guilty of sex-related crimes be – at a minimum — dismissed from military or dishonorably discharged.
The measure now goes before the full House for a vote.
Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales has pled guilty to killing 16 Afghan villagers in March 2012. The admission was made to avoid a possible death sentence.
The plea now goes to military review.
And finally, action film star Steven Segal has a new role.
Segal has reportedly agreed to star in commercials for a Russian arms maker.
