named The Hall of Reflections.
World War One veterans of American Legion Post 85 welcomed the returning
WWII veterans to this room of twenty-foot-high reflective cobalt blue
glass inscribed with names of historic WWII battles, maps, military
insignias, and American Legion emblems. The glass, manufactured in their
Ford City Plant, was donated by PPG in honor of their employees who served
in the war. The engravings were the work of artist Albert Van Dine, father
of the KDKA personality, Wayne.
On the west wall, large,
backlighted, etched glass maps
depict the Pacific and European theaters of war.
Also, the American Legion
emblem on this wall is
surrounded by insignias of the branches of service.
