Four Chaplains Issue United States, 1948.
This attractively engraved mint stamp was issued on May 28, 1948, to honor the four heroic United States Army chaplains who sacrificed themselves for their comrades when the S.S. Dorchester sank on February 3, 1943. Two ministers, a priest, and a rabbi, they gave up their own life vests so that others might live. The chaplains were Lieutenants Rev. George L. Fox (Methodist); Rabbi Alexander D. Goode (Jewish); Fr. John P. Washington (Roman Catholic); and Rev. Clark V. Poling (Dutch Reformed). Three of the four chaplains were Boy Scouts or Boy Scout Leaders. The ship was torpedoed by the German U-Boat U-223. 229 of the 904 men aboard survived. All four chaplains were posthumously awarded the Purple Heart and the Distinguished Service Cross. Scott Cat.# 956.
