Triptych From World War II

During World War II, a group of artists designed and painted over 500 triptychs which were sent chaplains serving in the U.S. Army, Air Force, and Navy. Meière made 70 of the portable altarpieces which were used in military camps, airfields, and naval ships in both theaters of the war.
