Airmen do not have to serve. They do it because they find meaning in serving, whatever that meaning may be. Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Pat Thompson said that one way to find meaning is through spirituality. He also believes spirituality increases resilience because it gives people something to rely on and turn toward when they are struggling in their lives.

Master Sgts. Laura and Mark Magee attend the annual Nevada Air National Guard Airman of the Year Ceremony at the Nevada ANG’s fuel cell hangar Dec. 4, 2016. The married couple converted to Islam after Laura completed the chaplain assistant course in Fort Jackson, S.C. three years ago. (U.S. Air National Guard photo/Tech. Sgt. Emerson Marcus) Nevada ANG chaplain: 'I want people to know Islam is not evil'
Laura Magee remembers asking her father about religion when she was 8 while innocently combing her hair in front of a large vanity mirror. It was the first time she can remember asking one of her parents about the existence of a God — which she said her father quickly repudiated. Her parents identified as agnostic or atheist, she said. For Laura, now a master sergeant in the Nevada Air National Guard, these sorts of questions lingered and often went unanswered, even as she attended Christian services in adulthood.
