TOPEKA, Kan. — Military officials are investigating an Army specialist’s allegations that he was harassed for being an atheist but said Saturday they have found no trace of the officer listed as a defendant in the soldier’s lawsuit.

Spc. Jeremy Hall and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation filed a lawsuit this past week against a Maj. Paul Welborne and Defense Secretary Robert Gates.


“We’re talking about stuff that happened 36 hours ago. If they can’t find the people who have been harassing Jeremy, we will,” said Weinstein, who released Hall’s e-mails to The Associated Press on Friday. “This isn’t that hard to do.”
