Prior to 2009, every military service member was given a Bible by the United States government.
President Barack Obama put an end to that.
The steep decline in morale for the U.S. military along with the purge of top officers who were replaced with woke anti-Christian hacks, has moved a Force Recon Marine veteran to create an organization aimed at bringing faith back to a demoralized American fighting force.
Chad Robichaux said he formed the Mighty Oaks Foundation to build a faith-based community among service members and help them through struggles with morale.
“I’ve been around the military community for 30 years now,” Robichaux told the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “I’ve never seen morale as low as it is present day.”
Faith-based programs are “very successful for our military troops,” Robichaux said.
“Not forcing them, but they had the option for it. Every veteran and service member deserves that option to have a faith-based option or solution for their issues. In 2009, President Obama signed an executive order and moved that funding from the faith-based initiative and reallocated all that funding to clinical programs.”
The Mighty Oaks Foundation offers resilience programs for active duty service members, recovery programs for veterans that are suffering from PTSD, and a legacy program to help first responders who struggle with thoughts of suicide, Robichaux said.
As a result of Team Biden’s surrender in Afghanistan, Robichaux and some other veterans put together a task force to help retrieve Americans and allies left behind by Joe Biden.
“The truth is, we should not have done it,” Robichaux said. “We are 12 veterans from the Special Operations community who did it because our government wouldn’t, and our service members had to sit there and watch us do it. It broke my heart to see our service members have to watch us do something that they should have done.
“They would have done it better than us — proud of our team, we have awesome guys, but they would have done it better than us. They’re currently the guys that should be doing this. But they were not allowed to due to our [Biden] administration.”
