Memorial Program honoring the Four Chaplains
“Four Chaplains Day” is to be observed annually on Feb. 3 in America by unanimous resolution of the U.S. Congress in 1988. It is a day to remember Feb. 3, 1943, when one of the most remarkable and inspiring acts of heroism in the history of warfare took place during World War II. It is a day to honor the heroism of the Four Chaplains, who selflessly gave their lives “that others may live.” However, although veterans in The American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and other veterans organizations will hold special observances on Four Chaplains Day, most American media, most American schools and, therefore, most Americans will not observe it. Indeed, most Americans, including children who will not be taught about it in their schools, will not even know that there is a national Four Chaplains Day, or why. This is true even though, as a former soldier who owed his life to them has said: “Their heroism is beyond belief. That is one of the reasons why we must tell the world what these people did.” A memorial Program honoring the Four Chaplains will be held on Sunday, February 12 at 1:00. p.m. in Richardton in the American Legion Hall. Everyone is welcome to come and hear the story of these remarkable Men of God.
