Local vet spread word of God to Japanese during WWII
There was a spiritual side to World War II, and it was expressed by the saying, “There are no atheists in foxholes.”
When shrapnel and bullets were flying, many soldiers were praying, and if not audibly, then silently in their minds.
One of those, though he wasn’t carrying a weapon, was Phil Crenshaw, assistant to Chaplain Louie Wunneburger of Austin.
Crenshaw, a Lubbock resident and World War II veteran named chaplain for the recent Honor Flight to Washington, was trained the usual way for war.
