In memorial of a light that was removed from our presence but shines on in our hearts. Especially, her mother's heart. My love goes out to Mary on this Memorial Day. Peace be with you and all the world.

Rachel Bosveld,
I remember a lot of our conversations we had in basic, AIT, and when we got to see each other in Iraq. As a fellow MP stationed with 615th but in the same BN, knowing you was a great pleasure. I am sorry to the family and friends that hurt due to this loss. God has a plan and it pains me that whatever plan it is involved the loss of such a great kid. Its been so many years since and Ill never forget, will always remember you as a great, smart, and beautiful individual with a mind so full of hopes and dreams.

Ten years ago we lost you. Not many days go by that I and the others from the 143rd MP CO do not think of you and that dark deadly night. You will always be in our thoughts.

Hi Rachel, I know you through your mom, Mary, and have so much respect for you and your family. Our company has been sponsoring the Rachel Bosveld Fallen Soldiers Memory Walk, and I look forward to attending tomorrow. We want to help your mom and your family bring to fruition the wonderful work that you've begun.

To the family of Pfc. Rachel Bosveld:
The Fort Snelling Memorial Chapel Foundation will be honoring your loved one at the non-denominational Christian Memorial Day Remembrance worship service at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, 26 May 2013. We will remember the casualties of the Global War on Terrorism from Minnesota … and the bordering states of Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Outside of the historic Fort Snelling Veterans Memorial Chapel will be a “Memorial Garden” filled with some 300 white crosses bearing the names of the war dead … including your loved one.

The Memorial Garden will be encircled with larger white crosses representing all of the wars of our nation's history and give honor to all who have served in the United States Armed Forces and made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy today. Wreaths will be placed at the foot of each 8-foot cross bearing the number of U.S. Service Members killed in each of America's conflicts.

I would like to extend to your family an invitation to honor us with your presence at worship as we pay tribute to the sacrifice made by your service member and family. Our pastor, Kenneth L. Beale, Jr., will preach a message entitled, “Freedom:Free, but Costly.” At the conclusion of the worship hour, all of the congregation will be invited to silently pay their respects at the garden and there place poppies at each of the crosses. A Memorial Rifle Squad of the Fort Snelling National Cemetery will fire vollies as the US flag is lowered to half-staff and Taps is played. Following your visit to the Memorial Garden, your family is invited to attend an informal reception (weather permitting) outside of the Chapel. The Memorial Garden will remain until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, 27 May (Memorial Day).

As this Christian worship service has traditionally been well attended, we would be happy to reserve seating for you and yours. To do so, kindly call (651/286-7296) and leave a voice message indicating your veterans' name and the number of persons attending. For more information about the Foundation or driving directions to the historic chapel at Fort Snelling, visit our website at: Special rates for nearby hotels will be available. For more information call (651/286-7296) or email the office ( and leave your name and contact information.

Also, beginning at dusk (8:30 p.m.) on Saturday 25 May through dawn (6:30 a.m.) on Sunday, 26 May, a “Prayer Vigil for Peace” will be held in the sanctuary of the Chapel. You are invited to stop by, light a candle and place it at the foot of your loved one's cross in the Memorial Garden … and then enter the Chapel for prayer.

If you are not able to attend, we pray that you would find comfort in knowing that our prayers are with you and all of the fallen heroes.
