This chapter discusses the development of mandatory chapel attendance and the policy's legitimacy, including a detailed account of the efforts of cadets to terminate the required chapel attendance at West Point. In 1970, midshipmen joined with a West Point cadet in suing the Academies to end the practice of mandatory chapel attendance. The chapter describes the courtroom debates and proceedings for the Anderson v. Laird case, and ends with the beliefs of several administrators about the fate of compulsory chapel attendance.
