Jack flew 140 missions during World War 2 and his plane was never hit by a single bullet. Later he fought in the Korean War and the Vietnam War. He helped on the ground during the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Cold War. He retired as a Colonel with lots of awards for his valor and bravery.
I think Jack was a great pilot and a good man. But I think he also was guided and blessed by the Holy Spirit. He was an inspired man. He lives in Bountiful, Utah and went to BYU for his education. I think he's a Mormon and he knows how to rely on Heavenly Father's inspiration, even in battles of war.
We can count on Heavenly Father's help in all of our battles. We just need to live worthy of the gift of the Holy Ghost and ask for Heavenly Father's help in prayer.
