Some soldiers who fought in Europe were able to visit Switzerland,if they had sufficient leave time, but not that many. This was primarily due to the fact that even after the War in Europe officially ended, the troops were very busy. Many were guarding German POWs and occupying Germany. Remember that the war in the Pacific was still going on so many of the units were very quickly transferred back to the U.S. and then to the Pacific to begin preparing for a possible invasion of Japan. Due to the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan, the invasion never took place.

Before it became Switzerland the people worshiped paganistic gods like most other civilizations before organized religions were established. However, for as long as Switzerland has had a name, it has been predominantly Christian.
