    "Thus, it was with severe worry that the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), the civil rights and constitutional defense foundation of which I’m Founder and President, received the shocking testimonials of over 250 armed servicemember clients regarding the obsessed anticipation of apocalypse emanating from their superiors among the ranks of officers both commissioned and non-commissioned, spanning all four service branches."
    How did you "receive" these testimonials? Did you request them, search for them, or have them referred to you? Whose "clients" are they? What does "testimonials" mean here? How were their superiors' "emanations" expressed - in writing, conversation, addresses, pamphlets? What is an "armed service member client", a client of service members, a member of the armed services who is someone else's client, the client of a service member who is armed, or what?

    Sorry, this sentence is overfull and confusingly ambiguous. Who said what to whom?

      for a couple of years, I can tell you that the organization gets complaints in the thousands each year, but can only offer samples publicly of what military people are complaining about because a vast majortiy of them want or need to remain anonymous.

      MRFF have legally represented some of them.
