The Chapel Holds many memories

The Chapel has meant a great deal to many people.  Hundreds of airmen, over the years since Lowry Air Force Base opened in 1935, until it closed in 1994.  Chaplain, Lt. Col, USAF (Ret) was the last chaplain to hold services in the Chapel before Lowry Air Force Base was decommissioned.  He told us, “While I was at Lowry the Eisenhower Chapel stood at a corner of the base with few other buildings near it … mainly soccer fields were nearby.  Today, it stands like an island in a modern development of shops and dwellings, but still offers a place of worship, prayer, and meeting.  I’m so grateful it is standing and being used creatively.”
