Veterans Appreciation Talk: Birth of a New Idea

Free

To celebrate and honor our Veterans, we welcome retired Chaplain (Colonel) Janet Horton to speak on Sunday, November 10, 2 p.m. Chaplain Horton share her remarkable experiences and be inspired by how her deep faith in the promises of the Gospel and the idea of unselfish service brought her to change minds and hearts of many in the military. There is no fee to attend.

Chaplain Horton was recently inducted into the U.S. Army Women’s Foundation Hall for Fame as one of “the first women Army Chaplains.” She is also the first woman promoted to Colonel in the Army Chaplain Corps. Janet Horton served in the Army for 28 years and during this time supervised Religious support for Joint Task Forces in Albania, Macedonia and Kosovo. Additionally Chaplain Horton was present at the Pentagon on 9/11 and was part of a chaplain’s team which prayed with victims and aided families.

An accomplished author, Chaplain Horton wrote: “Cracking the Camouflage Ceiling: Faith Persistence and Progress in the Army Chaplaincy During the Early Integration of Women in the Military”.
