Activities for the Armed Services
Good news is being constantly received by Christian Science Activities for the Armed Services. Most of it is reported as healings, the rest as interesting experiences, noteworthy developments, and important incidents.
One incident reported was the selection of a Christian Science Representative in the Armed Services as the Outstanding Airman of the Year for a major air command of the United States Air Force. As a reward for winning this honor the serviceman and his wife were flown from Japan to Washington, District of Columbia, to represent the air command at the annual Air Force Association convention. The letter recommending the serviceman for the award stated that one reason for his receiving it was that he is "a Representative for his religious denomination." The airman has expressed gratitude on this point, and for his understanding of Christian Science, which, he says, enabled him to manifest the qualities that were recognized at the highest Air Force level.
An interesting experience reported by a Christian Science Minister for the Armed Services in Oregon concerned an officer in an Air Rescue unit. During the heavy rains and destructive floods of 1964 the detachment to which the officer belonged saved the lives of over a hundred people by removing them by helicopter from treetops, the roofs of barns and houses, and other dangerous places. Members of the detachment received citations for bravery and meritorious service.
