DAV strongly supports H.R. 5890, the Review Every Veterans Claim Act, which would limit the VA’s authority to deny a veteran’s claim solely based on the veteran’s failure to appear for a medical examination associated with the claim.

FOUR CHAPLAINS DAY
February 3, 1943, four U S Army Chaplains gave their lives aboard the USAT Dorchester while helping to save the lives of many service members and civilians as the ship sank into the chilly cold waters of the ocean while trying to make it to safe shores in Greenland. This was another great tragedy during the tragic times of World War II.
COMMITMENT, COURAGE and HONOR describe the acts of the four brave Chaplains. There were nine hundred people (servicemen and civilians) on the ship who sailed from New York with the goal of reaching their destination in Greenland safely. The ship was torpedoed by the German submarine U-223 off Newfoundland in the North Atlantic. The four Army chaplains gave up their life jackets and their lives so others could live. Because of their brave actions, as well as the brave actions of others, 230 people survived the ship’s sinking. We honor them this month for being brave, committed, and courageous in their service to their country, to their countrymen and most of all to their God.
Chaplains of the Army
Rev George Fox (Methodist), Jewish Rabbi Alexander Goode, Reverend Clark Poling (Dutch Reform), Father John Washington (Roman Catholic)
We salute you. May your souls forever rest in peace.
