If you can do the dance of the flaming *********, on stage, pissed, in front of your flock, then, and only then will become a legend. God finds many ways to tickle servicemen, starting a thread about the sky pilot probably isn't the cleverest pisstake, we hold them high in our strange little ways. **** with God and his main man and you're toast bro.
[bite shield-up]Bish's can join up to age 50 so the phys standards are appropriate to age, as with all other branches.

All I do know about the job after speaking with the Bish on Ocean last year is that you have to have served as a parish priest for a minimum of 1-2 years first. No idea about the weapons bit.
