The Story Of The Four Immortal Chaplains Published On War History Online
I'm extremely grateful to War History Online for publishing my article about the Four Immortal Chaplains on their website.
After visiting the New York State World War II Memorial, I came across a plaque that told the incredible story of sacrifice performed by four U.S. Army chaplains during World War II. After conducting some additional research, I began to write my publication about the Four Immortal Chaplains. Once I shared the story on my website, I sent an email to War History Online to see if they would be interested in publishing my work for their followers to read. I heard back from them and was in luck. On June 8, 2017, my article was published by War History Online under their Guest Bloggers section.
Here are a few lines that convey the importance of this incredible story. "The Dorchester quickly began taking on water and the order was given to abandon ship. Four Army chaplains worked to pass out life vests until all the vests were gone. Without regard for safety the four chaplains gave up their own life vests so others might be saved. These brave men of different faiths were last seen locked arm-in-arm on the ships hull praying and singing hymns. They perished as the Dorchester slipped beneath the icy waters of the North Atlantic.”
