Service honors four WWII chaplains

American Legion Post 186 will present the annual Four Chaplains Memorial Service at 2 p.m. Feb. 6 at Temple Beth David, 13158 Antelope St.

The service honors the four military chaplains (a Methodist minister, a Jewish rabbi, a Catholic priest and a Lutheran minister) who died aboard the USS Dorchester, which was torpedoed during World War II on Feb. 3, 1943.

The chaplains handed out life jackets to the servicemen aboard and, when there were none left, gave up their own. They remained aboard, comforting those who were too severely wounded to abandon ship. They were last seen with their arms linked, praying with the remaining men on the ship as it sank.
