The Meloon family started a boat building company in the 1920s that flourished, fashioning both pleasure boats and small boats for the military during times of war. The Meloons, committed believers, were awarded a contract to build 3,000 boats during the Korean War. The government’s boat inspector demanded a bribe to approve the vessels’ delivery. The Meloons’ faith couldn’t comply.
