    Anyone else receive the small card for the cross in my pocket in Boot camp? I removed the cross from the card and cut an extra boot lace to make a necklace, used white cloth tape to cover the knot. I still have that necklace with the original tape. I wore it for all 8 years I was in and semi-regularly now.

    Its one of those items of strength, kinda like the dog tags in the other threads, and I still have those too.

    Yup. I still carry mine in my pocket calendar along with the Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel the Patron Saint of the Airborne. Guess where I got that one from? ;f
