WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA TO HONOR LEWISTOWN MAN

On Wednesday, February 3rd, Wreaths Across America will honor the American heroes known as “The Four Chaplains” with a special Facebook live event at 12 noon to commemorate the U.S.A.T. Dorchester, which left New York harbor bound for Greenland carrying over 900 officers, servicemen and civilian workers. The ship was transiting the Labrador Sea when it was torpedoed by a German U-boat on February 3, 1943. The ship sank and 675 people on board lost their lives. In this ceremony, participants will hear messages and stories about Lt. George L. Fox who was from Lewistown, and others who lost their lives.
