Facebook Buddhist Pages

There are two pages on Facebook, that I am currently aware of, that specifically focus on Buddhists serving in our U.S. Armed Forces:

"Buddhists in the Armed Forces" (an open group)
http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/106564922724906/

"U.S. Military Buddhists" (a Facebook page)
http://www.facebook.com/#!/usmilitarybuddhists

These are great ways to connect with your fellow Buddhist servicemember, learn about Dharma groups or temples in your location, and having your questions answered about Buddhism and military life. There are many more of us out there than you may assume!

The British forces "Armed Forces Buddhist Society" also has a page and a restricted group

Tina,

You can follow the blog anytime!
This isn't an actual "group" just a personal blog I update with relevant news focusing on the topics of Buddhism, and the U.S. Armed Forces.

The Facebook groups are unrestricted, you are welcome to join them; they have different moderators.

Also, please provide a link to your page, "Armed Forces Buddhist Society" if you would like to be listed on this blog!
