On July 29th the local San Antonio USACCRA Chapter sponsored a memorial service at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery. This was the second annual service. Last year our first one was very small. We were thrilled to have such a great turn out this year.
Each year we select a representative Chaplain and Chaplain Assistant who is laid to rest at the Fort Sam Houston Cemetery. We honor their memory on behalf of the thousands of Chaplains and Assistants who have served our nation from the American Revolution until today. This year our attendance was bolstered by a great turn out of active duty Chaplains and Assistants. Also, we were pleased to have family members of our two honorees, Chaplain Conrad Walker and SSG Manuel Barrera. We also received excellent support from the National Cemetery administration and the MSD organization.
