THE FIFTH STREET CHAPEL, FORT ORD, 2010

“Not only would the army make every attempt to give the boys the comfort of home, but would invest precious time and money to make the camps look like home”.

The Construction Division of the Army did not need to design a chapel. Using the recreation halls could have saved considerable time and expense. Yet the Army, on Eleanor Roosevelt’s urging, calculated that it made a big difference to soldier morale. Thus, the Construction Division built a church that looked like a church, with a steeple and a cross, with pews and a lectern and altar rail. From the outside the 700 Series chapel would have not looked out of place in a New England village. The Army supplied them with these things because they were what American citizens by 1940 were suppose to have.
