I don't know how to express the gratitude I feel in my heart for Christian Science. It came into my life while I was in military service. I had been feeling low for quite some months. My military career up to that point had been a disaster. I could not seem to get along with any of my superiors while I was a Navy hospital corpsman, and my military performance grades were so low that I couldn't have received an honorable discharge at that time. One day while waiting for a bus to return to my base after a weekend leave, I took a Sentinel from a distribution box.

The Sentinel so interested me, particularly the testimonies of healing, that I got a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which was mentioned often in the Sentinel, from a local library. It is impossible to describe the exhilaration I felt as I read and became convinced of the efficacy of Christian Science. All desire for smoking and drinking, to which I was much addicted, was lost completely.
