Garden Dedication (Nov 2, 2018)

The Reflection Garden was dedicated on Nov 2, 2018 with speeches by Brig. Gen. Douglas M. McBride Jr., Quartermaster General, retired Lt. Col. Delinda Creal, Friends of the AWM Association president,  Brig. Gen. Heidi J. Hoyle, Chief of Ordnance, and Dr. Francoise Bonnell, AWM Director.

A large audience gathered to watch the official unveiling of the  14th Army Band (Women’s Army Corps) Monument as part of the renovation to the garden outside the museum.  The garden is enhanced with Tribute benches and Woman In War plaques.  Dr. Bonnell said of the garden, “We are highlighting the transformation of a beautiful garden……(it) has always been an important part of our footprint. When the museum was built at Fort McClellan, AL, the garden was an integral part of the plan.”

Special thanks to Friedrich (Fred) Stein and Herb Greene for their time and photographic expertise in capturing the events on Friday and Saturday.
