All about the value of bringing chaplains to war with you.
Speaking of religion. The best part of this Department of War training film is when the man says, "We're surrounded, cut off from our supplies. Our only chance is to make a break for it. There will be casualties. We're short of doctors and nurses, we'll need everyone's help. [Dramatic pause, turns to Ronald Reagan and colleague] -- I know we can count on you, chaplains."
I also like when one chaplain defines a coward as someone who "welches on his job." Welch being a variant spelling of Welsh. Reminds me of my favorite ethnic joke. It was told to me twice, first by a Romanian, then by a Hungarian.
The Romanian's version: Q: What's the difference between a Romanian and a Hungarian? A. Either will gladly sell you their grandmother, but the Hungarian will deliver!
The Hungarian's version (I'm not making this up): Q: What's the difference between a Romanian and a Hungarian? A. Either will sell you their grandmother, but the Romanian won't deliver!
Coming together in understanding is the beginning of lasting peace.
