Activities for the Armed Services

Members of the Armed Forces desire happiness and success, as civilians do. However, many of them find the discipline of having to clean barracks, shine shoes, press uniforms, and perform numerous other duties a challenge to attaining these goals. The Field workers of Christian Science Activities for the Armed Services are helping military personnel gain happiness and success through applying the truth.

A young Christian Science airman who did not follow this course was overcome by pressures developed during training. In consequence, early one morning he climbed out of a window of his barracks and disappeared. Hours later a Christian Scientist who was serving as a Chaplain at the same Air Force base learned of the airman's absence. Considering the situation an emergency, the Chaplain began to pray for the airman's awakening, guidance, and protection. The next morning on his own initiative the airman reported back and thus avoided being considered away without leave, or AWOL. He was given a very light sentence, a week's restriction.
