The 11th Anniversary of the Shin Ae Won Children's Orphanage
near Wonju is commemorated with the unveiling of a special monument
to the institution's founders. The orphanage, formerly known as
the Little Wanderer's Orphanage, was started by Chaplain (Capt.)
A.L. Anderson, Maj. Edward R. Bates, and Lt. Col. William W. Stone,
in 1953. Standing to the left of the monument during its dedication
are Capt. William G. Crain (left), commanding officer of D Co. (Rifle),
17th Inf., whose unit sponsors the orphanage; Chaplain
(Capt.) Clyde M. Aiken, Camp Long post chaplain, and Chaplain (Capt.)
Sok Hyon Kim (right), a First Republic of Korea Army chaplain.
Orphanage officials and a member of the First Republic of Korea
Army flank the right side of the monument.
