    This is another item I picked up from the family of Robert Peltier 736th tank battalion 8th armored division. A pocket prayer book given to catholic service men. Notice the back cover has raised bumps in place of rosary beads. They are very worn down, proving the old saying that there are no atheists in combat. I enjoy personal items such as these. They don't have to be pricey to be interesting.
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    Very nice missal, So many Soldiers carried religious artifacts with them in battle to protect them..

    I still have my pocket bible that I was given when I joined the Army, and I have several other pocket bibles that I picked up over the years with different covers on them, Desert camo, Woodland Camo, etc..

    I also have a few prayer books from other denominations other than Christian Soldiers..
