Event Description

To celebrate and honor our Veterans, we welcome retired Chaplain (Colonel) Janet Horton to speak on Sunday, November 10, 2 p.m. to share her remarkable experiences. 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 the talk. For those who want to visit the galleries, admission to the museum is always free for veterans and active-duty military as part of the Blue Star Museums program. On this day, those accompanying veterans will also receive free admission to the museum.

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.”
