    Project is underway to provide a new Protestant Chaplains Monument at Arlington National Cemetery. The existing one located prominently in Section 2 was not updated for chaplains who died in service in Korea, Vietnam, or Cold War. Arlington officials noted that the existing monument upright made of concrete and is decaying and recommended a granite replacement. Separately a new “Going Forward” footstone monument is proposed that would present names of Chaplains who have died in service since 2000 with space for 50 future names. This would be an Interfaith monument. Project team donated the Jewish Chaplains Monument in 2011 and also plans a walkway. See plans on Facebook: Chaplains Hill: Arlington National Cemetery.
