A Veteran’s Prayer for Eternal Peace is a 15-foot-high, bronze sculpture at the center of a memorial to military chaplains. A large, cupped pair of hands is supported by a series of short poles. The hands are in the center of a circular plaza with a walkway that includes benches, depictions of chaplains, and symbols of religious beliefs.
