Testament of His Profession

I’ve heard the expression “wearing your heart on your sleeve” but never “wearing your New Testament on your helmet”!

Vietnam Chaplain Carter Tucker

The caption on this press photo reads: “(NY3-March 5) TESTAMENT OF HIS PROFESSION–Chaplain Capt. Carter Tucker of Monticello, Ark., carried the New Testament in this fashion to prevent it from getting sweaty or wet as he accompanied U.S. infantrymen in War Zone C. The chaplain was with the U.S. 25th Infantry Division on Operation Junction City in South Vietnam near the Cambodian border last week. (AP Wirephoto) (pr10938str) 1967” (author’s collection).
