Half-Staff Minnesota Flags – Honoring Immortal Four Chaplains Day

Friday, January 31st, 2014

American Flags and Minnesota Flags to fly at half-staff Monday, February 3rd in the State of Minnesota in honor of Immortal Four Chaplains Day. According to the office of the governor:
In 1957, the U.S. Congress established national observance of the tragedies anniversary to honor the four chaplains of difference faiths whose heroic and selfless acts that day saved the lives of many men. Witnesses of the event in 1943 recounted the heroic actions of Lt. George L. Fox, Methodist; Lt. Alexander D. Goode, Jewish; Lt. John P. Washington, Catholic; and Lt. Clark V. Poling, Dutch Reformed. During the 18 minutes the transport was sinking, the four chaplains went soldier to soldier to calm fears and hand out lifejackets. When there were no more lifejackets left to hand out, the four chaplains removed their own life vests and selflessly gave them to soldiers in need of protection. The four chaplains went down with the ship, arm-in-arm in prayer.
