The Veterans Terrace, located behind the dining hall at Shepherd of the Hills Retreat Center, features rock work dating back to World War II. More than one hundred German prisoners lived in barracks at the site during the war. While waiting to return home, they worked on the grounds and at a nearby hospital. We feel it is important to honor and preserve this piece of history. “We want our youth to understand that America’s men and women have fought to preserve their freedoms,” said former BMH President Tom Campbell. “The Veterans Terrace seemed like an excellent way to do that while also preserving a unique feature of our campus.”
For a donation of $100, you can place an engraved paver in honor of a veteran. Funds donated support older youth served throught our Independent Living and Apprenticeship Programs, housed at the retreat center.
“The Veterans Terrace allows us to honor the history of the camp, to recognize the contributions of our men and women in service, and to raise funds for campaign improvements,” said Campbell. “Together, we can continue to make a positive difference in the lives of our at-promise children.”
