Four Chaplains Service
The Southeastern Shore District American Legion presents the Four Chaplains Memorial Service on Sunday, Feb. 13, at 2:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend the event which will take place at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center in Salisbury. Four Chaplains Memorial Services take place in communities across the country on or near the sinking of the Dorchester in order to promote the need for cooperation among all people. The Dorchester was a troop transport ship carrying 902 service men, merchant seamen and civilian workers to Greenland, when it was struck by torpedoes launched from the German submarine U-223 on Feb. 3, 1943. In spite of the chaos four army chaplains did their best to calm those on board, aid the wounded and help the survivors of the attack to safety. They offered their own life vest to others and went down together with the sinking ship. For their bravery, the Distinguished Service Cross and Purple Heart were awarded posthumously on Dec. 19, 1944 to the next of kin. For the first and last time, a special medal for heroism was presented by the President on Jan. 18, 1961. Join the community in honoring these four men at the Four Chaplains Memorial Service on Saturday, Feb. 13, at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center.
