Cost of continuing wars to be marked in stone

Reclaiming the Prophetic Voice will again be marking the cost of the continuing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan by placing the January stone on the Memorial Cairn at the intersection of Broadway, Elm and Park streets in New Haven at 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 1.

The January stone will be inscribed with the January total of U.S. military personnel killed and the approximate documented numbers of Iraqi and Afghani civilians killed.

Rev. Ian B. Oliver, Pastor of the University Church and Senior Associate Chaplain for Protestant Life at Yale University, will lead the ceremony. All are welcome to join in this public reminder that the wars are not over.
