August 5, 2011 — The Thayer Hotel at West Point, N.Y. will dedicate a room to distinguished West Point graduate, U.S. Army Brigadier General, Rebecca Halstead (Ret.), spokeswoman for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) Nov. 2, 2011.
The ceremony will take place on hotel grounds beginning at 6 p.m. and will include a one hour reception followed by an official dedication program. The Thayer Hotel, an historical landmark at the United States Military Academy located at West Point, N.Y., is offering 149 guest rooms and several common areas to those graduates whose global and national accomplishments are well-deserving.
“I am humbled to my knees to accept a room at the Thayer Hotel to be decorated in my honor,” says General Halstead, first female West Point graduate in U.S. history to command at the strategic level in Iraq. “These rooms are amongst the most celebrated in the world, and I am privileged to be chosen to join and remain present in a place so significant to our nation’s history.”
The $25,000 room sponsorship not only supports the honorable achievements of Halstead, but will also financially support complete renovation of the room, including customized décor reflecting Halstead’s significant contributions worldwide.
Recognized for hosting five U.S. presidents, along with countless world leaders, the Thayer Hotel’s dedicated rooms will embrace future occupants with a wealth of comfort, technological convenience, and inspiration. Halstead’s acknowledged sponsor is the F4CP, though funding was specifically provided by the following companies: Foot Levelers, Standard Process, Performance Health, Northwestern Health Sciences University, and Parker University.
Halstead joins a distinguished roster of military heroes who will also be honored with rooms bearing their names, including: General Douglas MacArthur, General Barry McCaffery and General Martin E. Dempsey.
Kent S. Greenawalt, chairman, F4CP, shares his enthusiasm in helping to fund Halstead’s room, “Rebecca’s inspirational advocacy and long-term devotion to the chiropractic profession has proven her worthy of this heightened admiration. It is truly an honor to myself and all those involved to help carry out her remarkable legacy.”
