The three memorials on Chaplains' Hill at Arlington Cemetery recognize Catholic chaplains, WWI chaplains, and Protestant chaplains. Later today, a memorial to Jewish chaplains will be dedicated.
A memorial to 14 Jewish military chaplains who died during active service is being dedicated today at Arlington National Cemetery.
The memorial will sit atop Chaplain's Hill at Arlington, beside existing memorials to Protestant and Catholic military chaplains. The chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force was expected to be at this afternoon's dedication at the cemetery's memorial amphitheater, along with the chiefs of chaplains for the Army, Navy, and Air Force.
The memorial is privately funded but was recognized earlier this year by a joint Congressional resolution. The 14 chaplains named on the memorial served in World War II, during the Cold War Era, and in the Vietnam War.
