Fort Jackson Chapel to be Razed

Not long after noting a US military chapel in Australia had been preserved since WWII, an article from Fort Jackson reveals their WWII era chapel will soon be flattened:

The chapel, built in 1941 and dedicated in 1958 to all the soldiers who trained at Fort Jackson for World War II, is slated for demolition in October…

A Fort Jackson spokesman said via email that the chapel was too expensive to move, repair or operate.

In 2013, Dobbins saved their WWII era chapel — by literally moving it across the runway.
