Four Chaplains Memorial Service to be held in Sturgis


News Staff - January 25, 2018

STURGIS, SD - VA Black Hills Health Care System invites the public to attend the Four Chaplains Memorial Service at 1:30 p.m. on February 11, 2018 at the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Sturgis.  

Local Veteran organizations will participate in the event by placing wreaths at the altar during the program.  Immediately following the service the public is invited to a chili feed to be served at the Sturgis Veterans Club.  

The Dakota Choral Union (DCU) will perform during the service. The DCU organization supports and encourages quality choral music in the Black Hills region.

The Four Chaplains Memorial Service honors four Army Chaplains - Lt. George L. Fox, Methodist; Lt. Alexander D. Goode, Jewish; Lt. John P. Washington, Roman Catholic; and Lt. Clark V. Poling, Reformed Church of America, - four men of different faiths, on a rapidly sinking ship, who gave their life jackets and lives so that younger soldiers might survive when the USS Dorchester was torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine on February 3, 1943.
