Sky Pilot

He was a military chaplain during the Vietnam War who blessed the boys before every mission that they went on.  The pilots questioned his ability to reach the sky, thinking that he could not fly that high.  The chaplain tells all the soldiers that they are fighting for the greater good, because they are soldiers of God, which gave them confidence for every battle that they got involved in.  When one of the soldiers returned from battle, he realized the words of the chaplain went against what he learned in the Bible, “Thou shalt not kill”.  These pilots had a great record for shooting down enemy planes and when the Sky Pilot chaplain passed away, Nintendo created the game Fortress in the Sky to honor him.

    1. It was a lovely picture that you gave us to work with this week Sadje and I always liked that song and there actually is a game called game Fortress in the Sky. Thanks again for the fun prompt.
