Evangelical Christians make up roughly forty percent of active duty military personnel, yet they are reportedly being treated with increasing hostility. 

They may have their champion in Ron Crews, executive director of Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty and retired U.S. Army chaplain and colonel, according to a recent One News Now article. 

The men and women of the armed forces make courageous stands to protect the religious liberty of all Americans, according to Crews, who is set to testify on this topic before a subcommittee of the House Armed Services.

The Washington Times reported in 2013 that evangelical Christians were included in the list of "extremist" religious groups for the U.S. Army Reserve. This list includes groups like al Qaeda and Hamas.
