Four Chaplains memorial service, Feb. 5

>>>>From the National Organization,

Feb. 3 marks the 69th anniversary of the sinking of the United States Army Transport Dorchester, where four chaplains put the lives of others before their own. And because of their bravery, American Legion posts nationwide remember Four Chaplains Day every year with memorial services.

Services this year will be held on Feb. 5. To request information on how to conduct a Four Chaplains Memorial Service, email the Americanism and Children & Youth Division at acy@legion.org.
