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.

Question: While marching or standing guard in a place of worship or a military funeral in a church, is the cap worn by the Color Guard?
Answer: Yes. The cap should be worn in church by the Guard of Honor, the Color Guard, and the Commander of same while in marching order or standing guard. When seated in pews, the cap should be removed; however, armed guards always remain covered wherever they are. Only when they do not bear arms do they uncover in church or while a prayer is uttered outdoors. In the case of the Color bearers, if the guards are armed, the entire Color Guard is armed and therefore follows the above rule.
"I have fought in every battle of every war for more than 200 years. I was flown at Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Shiloh, and Appomattox. I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches of Normandy, Guam, Okinawa, Korea, and Khesan, Saigon, Vietnam; know me, I was there. I led my troops, I was dirty, battle worn, and tired but my soldiers cheered me and I was proud. I have been burned, torn, and trampled on the streets of countries I have helped set free. It does not hurt for I am invincible. I have been soiled upon, burned, torn, and trampled in the streets of my country. And when it's done by those whom I've served in battle, it hurts but I shall overcome for I am strong. I have slipped the bonds of Earth and stood watch over the uncharted frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon. I have borne silent witness to all of America's finest hours but my finest hours are yet to come. When I am torn into strips and used as bandages for my wounded comrades on the battlefield, when I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier, or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent at the grave of their fallen son or daughter, I am proud.
