Sky Pilot Charge

My Comrades pinned these wings on my chest, I’ve earned their confidence and will not rest, as a Cootie, “Busier than a Bee,” I wear them proudly for all to see, honoring my Brothers when they fall, in joy or sorrow I’ll give my all,
always vigilant to spot a frown,
it’s my duty to turn it upside down.

What is a Sky Pilot?

A Sky Pilot is the Cootie nickname for a Chaplain.

MOC and MOCA Sky Pilots (Chaplains at the Grand level) are our nation's comrade veterans who minister to our nation's sons and daughters, and their families. Like any chaplain or minister, they must provide a dynamic and genuine ministry with a shepherd's heart.  Whether leading worship, visiting a hospital, conducting a final farewell to our comrades, or even answering a phone call just to talk, Sky Pilots are always at the frontline of our veterans' lives.

Sky Pilots serve both God and country by bringing their unique gifts with which they are endowed by God, to the veterans of our nation in the broad, challenging, diverse, and ever changing environment.
