Peachtree City American Legion Auxiliary Unit 50, along with American Legion District Four, will be hosting this year’s Four Chaplains Remembrance Ceremony on Saturday, February 4th, 2pm @ Peachtree City United Methodist Church, 225 Robinson Rd, Peachtree City, GA 30269.
This ceremony embodies the principles of selfless service to humanity without regard to race, creed, ethnicity, or religious beliefs. Four U.S. Army Chaplains, of various religious beliefs, gave up their life jackets and prayed together when their WWII transport ship, the U.S.A.T Dorchester was torpedoed eighty miles south of Greenland on February 3, 1943.
The Chaplains came from different faiths & backgrounds and due to their encouragement, they are attributed to saving numerous lives. All are invited to attend this tribute & remembrance.
