Christmas 1968. My sister and I bought my father a small pocket Bible and sent it to him while he was in Vietnam.
I had read about these Bibles being carried by the fighting men during WWII. Inside it’s cover is a steel plate. I had heard stories of Bibles with a steel plate stopping a bullet and saving that soldier.
Thankfully he never had to put it to such an extreme test.
