SPRING HILL

Memorial service will honor four military chaplains

The annual Four Chaplains Memorial Service will be at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 10 at Mariner United Methodist Church, 7079 Mariner Blvd. Veterans organizations will participate, and retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Monroe T. Smith will speak. The service honors the four military chaplains, all of different faiths, 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 were: Methodist minister George Fox, Lutheran minister Clark Poling, Jewish rabbi Alexander Goode and Catholic priest Johnny Washington. For information, call Nick Morana at (352) 683-4945, or Charles Haig at (352) 597-1210.
