Memorial Chapel Kwajalein

This chapel was constructed between 11 December 1944 and 11 February 1945 by a joint effort of Army Engineers, U.S. Marines and Navy Seabees to commemorate their fallen comrades in the Battle of Kwajelein. 372 U.S. servicemen died on this atoll during the battle.

The stained glass window (see picture) was added in 1995.
