To Whom It May Concern

I am the President and Founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF; www.militaryreligiousfreedom.org), an IRS-approved, civil rights award-winning, nonpro t charity devoted to preserving the Constitutional religious freedoms of our nation's honorable and noble United States marines, sailors, soldiers, airmen, and veterans. Formerly, I served in the Reagan Administration as Assistant General Counsel, White House O ce of Administration, Executive O ce of the President of the United States and as General Counsel to two-time Presidential candidate H.Ross Perot and Perot Systems Corporation. Pesach Lattin is a very close friend of mine and an active supporter of, and major donor to, MRFF. He is intricately involved with our charitable work on a day-to-day basis. He has shown a sel ess dedication to preserving precious freedoms in this country; freedoms that are being attacked at this very moment, and he has resolutely and steadfastly refused to simply and "safely" sit on the proverbial sidelines while many others conveniently do. Edmund Burke once opined that all that is necessary for the forces of evil to triumph is for enough good men to do nothing. Mr. Burke would have loved Pesach Lattin. MRFF currently represents well over 13,000 active duty U.S. armed forces personnel, many in the battle zones of Iraq and Afghanistan. ese brave men and women in uniform are having their Constitutional rights to freedom of religion mercilessly trampled upon by their own military chains of command attempting to use the draconian specter of command in uence to force-feed fundamentalist Christianity down their respective throats. Ironically, 96% of MRFF clients are actually Christian themselves but are being told by their military superiors that they aren't "Christian enough”. Pesach Lattin's daily e orts of support, on many di erent fronts in this battle, are irreplaceable to both MRFF sta and MRFF clients. Indeed, Winston Churchill stated o en that we make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give. Pesach Lattin "gives" so very generously continually of his blood, sweat and tears besides his checkbook. America and the American armed forces are far better places with stellar people like him in it; so is e World. Please consider this letter a personal recommendation of only the highest order on behalf of my dear friend, Mr. Lattin. Very respectfully,

Michael L. "Mikey" Weinstein, Esq. Founder & President Military Religious Freedom Foundation
