The benefits I have received through the study of Christian Science...

The benefits I have received through the study of Christian Science have been so numerous that I wish to express my sincere gratitude by making some of them known. My admittance into the Army was one of the first demonstrations made. In the first classification of registrants I was turned down as physically unfit and placed in the last class, the fifth. This did not surprise me greatly, as I had been out West for a number of years suffering from tubercular disease. While at this time I was actively engaged in work, I always had fear of a recurrence of the Old condition haunting me whenever I did anything requiring exertion. My doctor advised me in all earnestness against attempting to get into the Army.

Several months later, however, I was led to learn the power of Truth over the illusion of sickness when my sister and I were healed of sore throat, and a friend was cured of influenza, through the aid of a Christian Science practitioner. These demonstrations were all made within the same week, after material means had been tried in vain. In the succeding months a number of demonstrations followed and I found myself rid of glasses and free from fear of any penalty of sickness for doing what was my duty; so upon having another physical examination I was put into class A-1 and entered the service in July, 1918. Though I had been five years without any violent exertion, I went through the five weeks of intensive training at camp in a hot climate with no ill effects whatsoever. On our trip across the ocean I was protected from the so-called epidemic, though men all around me were suffering from it. Up to the time of writing this testimony I have never been on "sick call" nor failed to report for drill or duty a single day. More than the physical benefits received, however, is the spiritual uplift a cause for gratitude. Time and again the refuge of divine, ever present Love has enabled me to rise above conditions of inharmony manifested as impatience, anger, homesickness, and the like.
