My brother graduated from West Point back in 1971. He never made it to Vietnam. My son is a 10 year Marine veteran with a tour in Iraq for Uncle Sam and 1 tour in Iraq for Honeywell. My brothers graduating class at West Point were given shirt pocket sized bibles to take with them to wherever they were to be assigned. The nice thing about those bibles were that they had a steel front cover. So by putting that bible in your fatigue shirt breast pocket you were reinforcing the power of the bible and helping to protects yourself at the same time. Couldn't something similar be done for all our grunts who are sent into harms way?
