Convinced that Fort Meade should have a memorial park to honor fallen soldiers, the Odenton man later led a decade of discussions and planning that culminated yesterday with the groundbreaking of Centennial Park.

Instead, the Tank Corps Headquarters and the Tank School were established at the Army camp a year later, in 1919.

Over the years, she had heard about the two Washington women who gave the seed money, the workers who constructed the chapel in just 60 days, the chaplain-turned-jitney driver who ferried soldiers from the Army base to the Odenton Road church.

Nestled among trees on Camp Meade Road, the cream-colored rancher with long porches and white columns looks more like someone's home than Arundel's only residential hospice for terminally ill patients. And that was the idea for Chesapeake Hospice House."Everything is designed to be really, really homey," said Allison vTC Alexander, spokeswoman for the Hospice of the Chesapeake, which is to operate the residence in Linthicum.
