In Wings of Gold, Christian youth fiction by Lance Patterson, Sam Walker gets a surprise on the first day of Officer Candidate School. There’s nothing easy about earning a Marine pilot’s wings. Sam knows that. But he’s not prepared for an agnostic platoon sergeant who calls him a religious fanatic. "You better get use to my language and keep your Bible to yourself," his sergeant announces. "And anyone that whines about it will be gone in a heartbeat." How can Sam find the courage to witness for Christ in such an atmosphere? Which will prove more important to him, his wings or his Savior?
