Description:

On a Sunday morning in December 1941, a chaplain had his most difficult assignment — to say a prayer to sailors aboard a U.S. navy ship actively under low flying attack by the enemy firing from all directions. He quickly realized the best he could do was walk the ammunition line saying, Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition! Stories of the overheard phrase quickly turned into legend and passed between soldiers, eventually reaching the press and one Broadway composer and lyricist, Frank Loesser.
