Atheist in Foxhole Award

This award was suggested by Vietnam War vet and longtime Board Member Steve Trunk (pictured with Jeremy Hall), to combat the ridiculous myth that there are no "atheists in foxholes," and, in particular, to recognize activism to defend the constitutional principle of separation between state and church which every soldier takes an oath to uphold.
