The article offers the personal experience of the author, a Navy chaplain, who fought the discriminatory policy of the U.S. Navy on prayer offerings. The author states that though he prayed in Jesus' name, he risked his career to help sailors of other faiths. He was punished by his commanding officer and made to pray Jewish prayers for 8 months. Court-Martialed for over emphasizing his faith in his prayers, he won the case in the U.S. Supreme Court.
