Today is Four Chaplains Day, established by Congress to commemorate the events of February 3, 1943, when the USAT Dorchester sank during WWII. As the crowded boat went down, four chaplains of different faiths gave up their life vests so that others could live. Those men were Lt. George L. Fox, Methodist; Lt. Alexander D. Goode, Jewish; Lt. John P. Washington, Roman Catholic; and Lt. Clark V. Poling, Dutch Reformed.

The chaplains are honored at WCMP, on a sculpture in our Faith Crypts section of the park. The quote reads: “To live in hearts that love us is not to die.”
