Kyle Carpenter and fellow Marine Brandon Stiles compare tattoos. Carpenter got his—Psalms 144:1—just before deploying to Afghanistan. “It talks about how the Lord trains your hands for battle and your fingers for war. A buddy mentioned it to me, and I started thinking, ‘There’s an OK chance we’re not coming back… I’m going to need my faith over there.’ And I loved the Bible verse.”
