Elder Holland dedicates renovated Mormon Battalion site

After extensive renovation and technological enhancement, the newly reopened Mormon Battalion Historic Site operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in San Diego was officially dedicated on Friday.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, a member of the Church’s Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, dedicated the new facility. He was accompanied by Elder Richard G. Hinckley and Elder Marlin K. Jensen, both of the First Quorum of the Seventy. Elder Hinckley oversees the Church’s Missionary Department and Elder Jensen serves as Church Historian.

“We acknowledge today a people who, in great measure because of their faith, were determined to show patriotic allegiance and a willingness to give military service to their country in spite of the persecution and treatment being received at the hand of the very government asking them to serve,” Elder Holland said.
