It is not the full book of common prayer, which is understandable; it is scaled down to the most essential rites and prayers most relevant to those in the Armed Services. It is useful for chaplains as well as lay persons. I liked the information on the Episcopal Church and finding congregations overseas. I think it could have included the website for the national church.
