Tour Station Two: Veterans Center Chapel and Memorial Garden

Step off the Teleport Landing Pad and head over toward the Chapel (upper right of this photo). The Chapel provides a serene setting for quiet contemplation and reflection. Often, we find the doors have been left ajar, a wordless affirmation that the Chapel has once again provided shelter to someone in need of comfort. Adjacent to the Chapel is the Memorial Garden, which includes a POW flag at half mast and several monuments. This quiet, park-like setting provides a peaceful place for vets, family members of deployed servicemembers, and the bereaved to meet up and privately communicate about their experiences. We recommend using Instant Message (IM) to communicate when discussing personal, confidential, sensitive or emotional topics with one another. At the Memory Garden, take just a moment to look at the monuments. Note that the POW Flag flies over a monument that says “All Gave Some, Some Gave All.” Freedom isn’t free, and some have paid a very high price for the liberties we enjoy.
