The Extended Troxel Family Visits Arlington National Cemetery

Date Icon Publish Date

“These photos were taken yesterday afternoon (4 April 2006) when the ‘family' of Chester Troxel came to Arlington National Cemetery for the first time.

“Some of you knew they were coming, for others this is your first mention of it.  The group is the Anchorage Christian School Choir. A choir which Chester Troxel's son Hollis is a member. This New York City-Washington, D.C. trip was booked long before he lost his father in January 2006.

“The photos start with their wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown, goes to their first assembly at the site in 60, and the magic that followed.

“If you've not read about this extraordinary family, click here for the the Troxel page. You'll see just how integral this church is to this family. Even if you've not got the fortitude to look through all of the photos, I think these photo are uplifting. Those kids, who were assembled in front of all of your family, and their own Troxel for the first -and possibly only time,– pulled themselves together and sang for everyone with a PURPOSE.  They filled the field with a kind of moment that I couldn't help but share with you all.”
Holly, April 2006

This website wishes to extend its profound thanks to Holly, for this and many other acts of kindness that she has extended to the families, and the extended families, of those who rest in honored glory in Arlington National Cemetery.

Holly is truly a patriot as well as a compassionate and kind person.

In Honored Memory of Chester William Troxel,
Chief Warrant Officer, United States Army
