    Marine pilot became God
    [​IMG] 2nd Lt. William Magill is shown in his F-4U Corsair. For 15 months he flew the plane on 89 combat missions, as represented by the bombs painted on its side.

    Father Bill Magill of Venice, Fla. was a “Devil Dog.” He flew a Corsair, F-4U fighter, in the Pacific during World War II before he began working for the Lord.
    The former Marine aviator and retired Episcopal priest was a member of Marine Fighter Squadron VMF-111. “Devil Dogs” is what they called themselves. He saw action in the Marshall and Gilbert Islands in the Central Pacific from December 1943 until March 1945.
