The U.S. Army dedicated a memorial garden in South Carolina to honor 306 chaplains and chaplain assistants who gave their lives in service to their God and their country.

"They were spiritual leaders who lived their callings and loved their soldiers and proved it with their lives," said Maj. Gen. Douglas Carver, the Army's top chaplain.
The $200,000 memorial lists the names of 294 chaplains and 12 chaplain assistants on a wall of remembrance. The servicemen, all volunteers, died in battles from the Revolutionary War to Afghanistan and Iraq

"There is a story behind every name," said John Brinsfield, the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps historian.

The monument also features a life- size bronze statue of an Army chaplain comforting a grieving soldier.
