The Call

At the place of The Call, The Homecoming can be seen far over toward the mountains, but there are many experiences to be had before coming home.

This entry place has a simple exhibit to explain the intention and history of the garden and a diagram to guide the visitor.

The Call can come from without or within: word of invasion or attack, a newspaper headline, a friend calling saying, ” Come on, sign up with me,” a draft notice, a way to pay for education, a way to “see the world,” or a response to “Uncle Sam wants You!”

For many, this is the first time away from home, and departure is mixed with excitement and apprehension; the last fishing trip with friends, a send-off party, goodbye to family. Life will never be the same.
