Wall of Honor
Yesterday my family attended a special dedication of the Veterans Wall of Honor at Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge. This exquisite mini-cathedral is a national monument in Valley Forge National Park, overlooking the site of General Washington's winter encampment during the Revolutionary War. The Chapel also is a functioning and vital Anglican parish. Spousey and I were married there.
A bronze plaque was dedicated in my father's name. We honored him for his five years of service as an officer in World War II.
A service in the chapel at which 170 people were in attendance was followed by a lovely reception.
A beautiful day.
