Stephenville High School Patriotism Committee members participated in the recent Four Chaplains Memorial Service held by the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 240. The service honored the Four Chaplains (Methodist, Jewish, Dutch Reformed and Roman Catholic) who perished aboard the US Army Transport Dorchester in 1943 after taking off their life vests and giving them to four young soldiers.
