Arlington National Cemetery honors Jewish chaplains in ceremony
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — A memorial to 14 Jewish chaplains who died during active military service will be dedicated at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington.
The dedication service, scheduled for Monday afternoon, marks the completion of a memorial that will sit side by side to previously existing memorials dedicated to Protestant and Catholic chaplains.
The privately funded memorial received backing earlier this year from a joint Congressional resolution.
According to the cemetery, this year marks the 150th anniversary of service by rabbis in the U.S. Armed Forces.
