The final page of this story is reprinted in Parade of Pleasure: A Study of Popular Iconography in the U.S.A. by Geoffrey Wagner (UK, 1954). Parade of Pleasure (abbreviated POP in Overstreet) criticizes violent and sexual imagery in popular culture, including comic books, which was the sole focus of Fredric Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent, published the same year.
Wagner writes, "War Report for March 1953 kicks off with the story of a padre who learns that might is right and who at the end brings a sword, not peace, with a vengeance. Chaplain James Tucker at first hates carnage but in the last pictures he hurls a grenade, shouting 'The Lord is my shepherd' and cracks a commie on the skull with his rifle-butt 'YAGHH!' remarking, 'And the lord has a long arm, my erring brother!'"
