I Wore it for Good Luck

Immaculate Conception Medal


When I left for Vietnam, my mother gave me an Immaculate Conception Medal. She said it would help keep me safe, so I wore it around my neck for a short while, until I decided it was just too shiny. I then slipped it into my wallet for the rest of my tour.

I gave what was left of it to my daughter Jill a few years back to keep. It was almost worn down flat from being in my wallet that long…
