The Four Chaplains
Chapel of Four Chaplains

Four Chaplains' Medal
This medal commemorates the extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty displayed by four American chaplains during the Second World War. It was awarded posthumously to Chaplains George D. Fox, Alexander D. Goode, Clark V. Poling, and John P. Washington for giving their life vests to others during the sinking of the troop transport ship Dorchester in the North Atlantic just after midnight on February 2, 1943. The four Chaplains were also posthumously awarded the Army's Distinguished Service Cross for their extraordinary heroism in action.

Fraternal Act Not Forgotten
Washington DC (NENS) -- I am reminded of the story of the U.S.A.T. Dorchester, enroute to Greenland during World War II. The ship was within 50 miles of her destination when a German U-boat torpedoed her. With 902 American troops and civilian workers aboard, the ship began to sink into the icy waters of the Atlantic. Frenzied men fled for the life boats, others for life jackets in order to save themselves. In the traumatic chaos, four chaplains, one-Jewish, two-Protestant and one Roman Catholic, gave up their own life-jackets...Their only means of survival to four distraught and frightened young men.
In the end the four chaplains, all from different faiths, went to their deaths with gallant dignity and godly spirit. Their faith and courage...and fraternal compassion, gave to every man looking from the chaotic decks or sitting in the safety of the waters, a serenity of spirit and a true example of submission to God. For this action, 230 survivors never forgot this fraternal act of love for the flock.
I would like to say to all those who are the calm and steady voice of strength and the truth--to those men and women of the Chaplain Corps who show the mystical fellowship which lightens our emotional load, that you are highly praised and warmly appreciated as team-members.
My prayers go with you as you celebrate your birthday, and may God continue to bless you with courage, devotion and the wisdom of Solomon.
