It has been my good fortune to be a Christian Scientist all my life. I attended the Christian Science Sunday School until the age of nineteen, when I was inducted into the Army.

As the time approached for me to go overseas, my foremost problem seemed to be the fear of death. At this time I was led to read the following from our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 410): "Every trial of our faith in God makes us stronger. The more difficult seems the material condition to be overcome by Spirit, the stronger should be our faith and the purer our love." It was a great inspiration to me to know that Spirit would overcome the seeming forces of evil.
