We've Come a Long Way...Baby


What would happen today if the President of the United States handed this out to all of our members of the military?

The stories our veterans of WW2 told about those Bibles are legion. "There are no atheists in foxholes" is not much more than a cliche these days, but to those who fought for our survival and freedom, the foxholes were real. To have some comfort in you pocket was not a small thing.

 In some cases it saved their physical lives. Worried parents even sent extra protection in the form of metal covers for the bibles.

The government Bibles were one of the two most popular items carried into combat by our WW2 heroes.  The other was

the Zippo cigarette lighter.

Oh, and what would happen if an American President did this today?

He would probably be impeached.
