February 12, 2018, Monday 							 	Veterans Court   10:30 To 12:30  (Lunch to follow) February 3, 2018, Monday - Commemoration of Four Chaplin's Day

This day commemorates the events of February 3, 1943, when the troop ship USAT Dorchester was torpedoed and sank off the coast of Newfoundland, carrying 4 Army Chaplains and over 900 soldiers. When the Dorchester began to sink, the Four Chaplains of different religions, George L. Fox (Methodist), Alexander D. Goode (Rabbi), Clark V. Poling (Baptist) and John P. Washington (Catholic), helped organize an orderly evacuation of the men. Life vests were passed out, but the supply ran out before each man had one. The four chaplains gave their own life vest to the others


and helped as many as they could into the overcrowded life boats. The Four Chaplin’s were last seen on the aft of the ship with their arms linked together, saying prayers and singing hymns, as the ship sank beneath them. The Four Chaplains were posthumously awarded the Purple Heart and the Distinguished Service Cross on December 19, 1944, and in 2006, they were awarded by the Medal of Honor for giving their own lives to save hundreds of men.
