Four Chaplains Sunday

Four Chaplains Sunday
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Over seventy years since a torpedo sunk the U.S Dorchester, the sacrificial actions of four military chaplains is still remembered today. Sioux Falls American Legion Post #15 held a memorial service to commemorate Four Chaplain Sunday.

The Four Chaplains interfaith memorial services are held to honor these four men. In the mist of chaos these men, two of them protestant, one a Catholic and the fourth a Jewish Rabbi, put their differences aside and united to server their fellow man; even in the face of death.

"That chaotic situation in which they found themselves in, really brought out the essence of their relationship; they were brothers," said key note speaker retired Chaplain Major General Norris L. Einertson. 

Sioux Falls American Legion post #15 chaplain, Gary Saxhaug said the memory of the Four Chaplains stands as an enduring example of interfaith cooperation and selfless sacrifice.
