Wreaths Across America Celebrates the lives of the Four Chaplains
As we remember, honor and teach, Wreaths Across America recognizes and honors the Four Chaplains during February. Replica dog tags in honor of Chaplains Fox, Goode, Poling, and Washington, as well as a dog tag representing the crew of the U.S.A.T. Dorchester, were placed on the Four Chaplains tree in 2017.
Tips from the Four Chaplains tree are among those harvested every three years to produce balsam veterans’ wreaths for placement in Arlington National Cemetery and at more than 1,600 other participating cemeteries across the nation and overseas.
This video tells the story of the steadfast faith and courage these four men exhibited so that others could live.
