Dick Langhinrichs, who was awarded two medals for valor during WWII, insisted, "There are Atheists in foxholes,because I'm one." At War's end, he headed to New York City for a stage career while writing a novel and pursuing his lifelong quest for meaning (as he questioned what he believed were superstitious Christian beliefs). Then a mid-life crisis changed the course of his journey.
