Activities for the Armed Services

From time to time servicemen participate in hazardous exercises and battle maneuvers to help fit them for combat conditions. Survival training is an example of this point, for it is a rigorous test of resourcefulness and stamina. Phases of it are hazardous.

Before taking such a course an officer asked a Christian Science Minister for the Armed Services for help. The course he took required the participants to spend time in a simulated prisoner of war camp and in hiking and camping high on snow-covered mountains. They had very little to eat, and many of them lost much weight. Some of them were unable to complete the course.
