Ronald Reagan, World War II Military Chaplain
C-SPAN recently published footage of Ronald Reagan acting in World War II military training films.
In this US military video aptly entitled For God and Country, Reagan plays a Chaplain. Reagan comforts and prays with the men on Christmas, and ultimately dies trying to save one. From the end of the film:
A Soldier: unarmed, yet not unarmed. For what better weapons may a soldier carry with him into battle than those of courage, of unswerving devotion to his faith and to his fellow man?
Interestingly enough, it appears there were no atheists in his foxhole…
The original CSPAN video can be seen here.
