Memorial service will honor WWII chaplains

The annual Four Chaplains Memorial Service will be at 2 p.m. Feb. 1 at Mariner United Methodist Church, 7079 Mariner Blvd.

There will be 22 organizations participating in the service, which will start with the American Legion Riders who will parade from American Legion Post 186 on Cortez Boulevard to the church. The Central High School ROTC will also participate.

The service honors the four military chaplains (a Methodist minister, a 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.

For information, call district and Post 186 chaplain Charles Haig at (352) 597-1210.
