The U.S. Army has a Chaplains' manual with a
section on Wicca.
It is titled: "Religious Requirements and Practices of Certain Selected Groups: A Handbook for Chaplains," Office of the Chief of Chaplains, United States Army, 2001-OCT.
Amazon.com mentions that:
"A specific purpose of the handbook was also to limit the amount of information provided on each group. Thus, while the information is accurate (in most instances approved by authorities from the individual groups themselves), it is by no means comprehensive. The material presented in the handbook was derived through an extensive research effort.
However, a reviewer cautions:
"The contents of this book were published in 1978, then copyrighted and reprinted by University Press of the Pacific in 2001, without update. In at least the case of Wicca, the material is badly out of date and incomplete.
