On February 3, 1943 the Army transport ship U.S.A T. Dorchester was torpedoed by a submarine and sank with 900 troops, including the Four Immortal Chaplains.
While aiding and comforting the Army troops as the ship sank, the chaplains surrendered their life jackets that others may live. As the Dorchester sank the four chaplains linked their arms and prayed.
