The BAOT Prayer song was inspired by Lt. Colonel Floyd Carter. He shared with me many stories about his experiences in the Air Corps.

BAOT PRAYER SONG
He was a successful flight instructor; he had great success as one of the first African American flight instructors. He told me on his application he didn't put his race and last name; he left it out purposely. It was assumed with all his experiences and test score he was white. When he showed up in person for duty the commanding officer He and his wife were two of the most humble people I have met; they were a super team.
Floyd told me he could fly any plane the Air Corps made.
