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. Participating in this year's event are: Rabbi Lenny Sarko, Rev. Roland Desjardins, Rev. Earl Harrigan and Walter Dry.
