DAVID PARRISH POST 296
During the month of February, American Legion war veterans honor our great presidents Washington and Lincoln and the Four Chaplains of WWII who died together in February 1943. These four U.S. Army Chaplains were on the Dorchester, a troop ship carrying 900 soldiers. When a torpedo hit their ship the four chaplains passed out life jackets until all were gone. Then they took off their own precious jackets, gave them to four young servicemen and told them to jump from the sinking ship. Clark Poling was a Reformed Church chaplain, Alexander Goode was a Jewish rabbi, John Washington was Catholic, and George Fox was Methodist. These chaplains of different faiths were last seen with their arms linked, praying to the one God they all served as the ship sank into the ocean. In Philadelphia, The Chapel of the Four Chaplains holds interfaith services each week at three altars, one for each faith, Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant. An eternal light burns above the entrance as a sign of unity. And chiseled in stone are these words: “Here is Sanctuary for Brotherhood. Let it Never be Violated.” At 7:30pm on Tuesday, February 18, 2003 the day after President’s Day, American Legion Post 296 will welcome the public to join them at a short interfaith memorial ceremony honoring the heroism of those chaplains. The ceremony will precede the general meeting. Post 296 is on Tillman Road, just west of Calhoun Street.
