This program is organized by the Mississippi National Guard commemorating four Mississippi chaplains who died on the S.S. Dorchester during WWII. The men—a rabbi, a Catholic priest, a Methodist, and a Dutch Reform minister— acted bravely by giving up their life vests to soldiers on the sinking ship. This ceremony will honor their lives and bravery. A reception will follow the event.
