A few days ago I reported that the Dalai Lama had sent his good wishes on Armed Forces Day to the UK's men and women serving in the military. Some took that report to be implicitly critical. It wasn't. If you want to read the Dalai Lama's entire statement, the Buddhist Military Sangha has posted it here.
I also came across at an invitation to join a new Facebook group for Buddhist members of the Armed Forces at the BMS site. The page was set up by USMC LCpl Luke Jamison. If you are a Buddhist member of the military, you can join here.
A few years back, an American soldier at Abu Ghraib wrote us asking for support in his practice.
