More significantly, he signed on to the school's honor code (I will not lie, cheat or steal), and to the daily chapel required of all students. Years later, while at the Hanoi Hilton, he was able to recite from memory the Episcopal liturgy, which gave his fellow POWs perhaps as much encouragement during their years of captivity as his refusal to jump the line of POWs released, offered to him alone because his father was CINCPAC commander.

August 27 2018 By dvirtue Church Militant Statement on the Pope - It needs to end
