The Chaplain

Chap., Col., Ormonde S. Brown, USAF
in The Chaplain, a journal for Protestant chaplains Washington, District of Columbia

The issues of our times are, at base, moral and spiritual issues. ... If today's battlefields are the hearts and minds and souls of men, as some have claimed, then it follows that our quest is for moral men who alone can win the battle. . . . We must recognize that only better men and ideas can supplant false doctrines and fill the world's spiritual vacuum. . . . We must beware the moral mite. . . .

The "religious man"—where the intents and objectives of good religion are understood should be the best soldier. He will be a God-related man, strong in his convictions on moral issues, with a will to work, to fight for right. ... He will be concerned with his country's welfare, a co-worker with his God to achieve and to preserve the best values in his world.
