American Legion Post 209 held a memorial ceremony for the ‘Four Chaplains,’ who died in February 1943 as their ship SS Dorchester sank. The men — George Fox, Alexander Goode, Clark Poling, and John Washington — gave their life vests to others as the ship was sinking. The ceremony was held at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church last Friday.
