Post 9/11 Active Duty Vets: Country, Yes. God, Not So Much

Eighty-two percent of veterans who served on active duty since 9/11 say they would advise a young person close to them to sign up for the military, according to survey figures released last week by the Pew Research Center.

That in spite of the fact that 37 percent of  post 9/11 active duty veterans say that they believe they have suffered from post-traumatic stress.

The Pew Research Center study also found that post-9/11 active duty veterans were more likely than their predecessors to say they have no religion in particular — 30 percent versus 15 percent for pre-9/11 vets.
