New memorial at Arlington for Jewish chaplains

  ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - A memorial to 14 Jewish chaplains who died
during active military service has been dedicated at Arlington
National Cemetery outside Washington.
     The dedication service Monday marked the completion of a
memorial that sits alongside previously existing memorials
dedicated to Protestant and Catholic chaplains.
     The privately funded memorial received backing earlier this year
from a joint Congressional resolution.
     According to the cemetery, this year marks the 150th anniversary
of service by rabbis in the U.S. Armed Forces.
