Inscription. Completed in 1942, The North Chapel Building featured leaded glass windows representing the 41 different training schools on site and one window representing the recruit. As the recruits at the Naval Training Center practiced many different religions, different services for all religions were offered. “There was a Priest, a Rabbi, a Baptist Minister and so on that would conduct the services.” Weddings for senior officers were held in the chapel as well.
