Although he never wore his religion on his sleeve, Tom Moorer was a man of faith. As Chairman of the Joint Chiefs he had been at the forefront in the legal fight to preserve mandatory chapel at the Naval Academy against the suit brought by the ACLU where he won at first but then lost on appeal. But in recent actions akin to mandatory chapel at the Naval Academy, such as the suit to deny mealtime prayer to VMI Cadets – recognizing that the ACLU’s ultimate target is the U.S. Naval Academy and even our capital ships at sea – he authorized the use of Naval Aviation Foundation funds to support a Friend-of- the-Court brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in opposition to the ACLU position. In Tom Moorer’s view it was foolish to deny prayer to an institution and services formed to train and deploy men for combat in defense of the nation. Prayer and especially unit led prayer can be a great morale booster for the troops going into battle as General George Patton proved in the Bulge with his Christmas Day prayer before Bastogne.
