The Four Chaplains

The four United States Army first lieutenant chaplains (Roman Catholic priest Father John P. Washington, Methodist minister the Reverend George L. Fox, Reform Rabbi Alexander D. Goode, and Reformed Church in America minister the Reverend Clark V. Poling) ... met at the Army Chaplains School at Harvard University.

They were aboard the troop ship SS Dorchester for their new assignments in the World War II Europe theater, when the ship was hit by a torpedo from a German U-boat in the Labrador Sea on February 3, 1943. The chaplains helped other soldiers board lifeboats and gave up their own life jackets when the supply ran out ... committing the ultimate act of selflessness and courage ... giving their lives to save civilian and military personnel ... remaining aboard the sinking ship.

Each were posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross ... second only to the Medal of Honor.

The are also referred to as the... "Immortal Chaplains" and "Dorchester Chaplains".
