5 retired Navy Seals run for Congress

Yes, Desert Storm was broadly supported as was the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.  The way our military is formed now leads me to believe that its not about who supports our military actions.  However, once people are enlisted or enter as officers, there appears to be significant peer pressure and official pressure toward both religion and conservative politics.  Again, I'm not basing this on person experience but rather conversations with former members of the military, all retired with 10 - 20 years service.  And I'm not claiming that it's universal, but clearly some members of the military have experienced this so I believe there is something to it.  It strikes me as odd that the military would promote religion and certain politics.  But then again its made up of people and apparently people just can't help themselves.
Why is it so?
