Hello to Laura Waldron and welcome to Atheist Nexus.
We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world who, like you, recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.
There are a lot of military men and wives in Atheist Nexus.
In particular, try visiting in the "Origins" group, the thread called ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS. You'll meet at once good military atheists there who are complaining about religion in the army.
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.
Read your post and, while I'm not in TN, I am most defanitly in the Bible Belt in Rogers, AR. I can relate to your feeling of being alone as I am literaly surrounded by Mormons. If you ever want to chat, well, you know how to get in touch.
