Dedicated on July 9, 1999 as Saratoga National Cemetery, it was the 116th National Cemetery. It was renamed to Gerald B. H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery on January 24, 2002, in honor of Congressman Gerald B. H. Solomon, who was known for his support of veterans’ causes, and who is interred there. During his tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives, he sponsored the legislation which created the Department of Veterans Affairs and secured approval for the creation of the national cemetery now named for him. He served in Congress from 1979 to 1999, and was Chairman of the powerful Rules Committee in the House at the time of his retirement. As of the end of 2005, only the first 60 acres (240,000 m2) were developed for interments. Gerald B. H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery is a United States National Cemetery located in the village of Schuylerville in Saratoga County, New York. Administered by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, it encompasses 351.7 acres (142.3 ha), and as of 2021 had over 23,000 interments. From Wikipedia.
Washington Memorial Chapel — located on Pennsylvania Route 23 in Valley Forge National Historical Park — is both a national memorial dedicated to General George Washington and an active Episcopal parish in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. The church was inspired by a sermon preached by Anglican minister Reverend Dr. W. Herbert Burk, founder and first rector of the parish. The building was designed by architect Milton B. Medary. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 1, 2017, and is undergoing an active restoration campaign. From Wikipedia.
During the 1973 Yom Kippur/Ramadan War both the Soviets and US forces were put on a heighten alert. I decided to skip school and hitch-hiked to Washington Chapel to spend the day praying for peace. I believe(ed) that there is no better place to pray for peace than at the memorial for fallen soldiers.
