The public can get a rare look at an American Legion tradition when its post in Algoma hosts a ceremony celebrating Four Chaplains Day Sunday. The ceremony is in honor of four religious leaders that gave their lives to save crew members aboard the Dorchester during a World War II battle that claimed 605 lives during its sinking. Nellie DeBaker from American Legion Post 236 says Sunday will be extra special because state legion commander Rev. Daniel Seehafer will be present, a first for Kewaunee County.
The Four Chaplains Day program will take place at the American Legion Post 236 clubhouse in Algoma beginning at 1:30 p.m.
