  2. I wonder if the military still does it like that. There are more than 3 or 4 religious categories of people. :(

  3. I understand this story as a metaphor, but I find it a little hard to believe that this is how the military would ever have done this. For one thing, not everyone attends religious services the same day--not even the all groups named in this video. Jewish folks have their sabbath on Saturdays, not Sundays, and I suspect the military allows people to attend services on the days traditionally associated with their religion. (Also, not all Protestants observe Sunday as the sabbath.)

    1. This video is a visualization of a true story that you can find here:

      I went back and looked at it, and it says it was at the end of WWII. Different times, I guess. :)
