"‘Don’t tell me there isn’t a God’" (article, Nov. 29) is offensive to nonbelievers of all sorts, on active duty and veterans. [I served in the U.S. Marine Corps.]

Those of us who choose to not believe recognize that every coincidence cannot be blamed on God. If there was an all-powerful, omnipotent God watching over us all, too many American families wouldn’t have lost their sons and daughters, husbands and wives in this war. It is quite convenient to claim that God was watching this specialist, but why was his God not watching over the rest? Was it part of "God’s plan," or is there really no God?
