Today being Sunday, Soldiers have the opportunity to go to church inside the RUBA (Rotational Unit Bivuoac Area):

0900 Catholic service, meet at 0820 at mayor's cell for carpool (already happened, but we had a good showing of 1-16 Soldiers)
1900 Buddhist service at outdoor tables next to Burger King
1900 Protestant service at DFAC #1 (northernmost DFAC pad)
2000 Latter-day Saint service at DFAC bldg 6043 (near shopette)

Even in the field or at NTC, Soldiers can exercise their right as Americans to the free exercise of religion.
