February 3 is designated Four Chaplains Day in honor of the four United States Army chaplains, George L. Fox, Alexander D. Goode, Clark V. Poling, and John P. Washington, who sacrificed their lives to save the lives of other service personnel while serving on the U.S.S. Dorchester, a United States Army troop transport that was sunk off the coast of Greenland on February 3, 1943. Each year the governor shall issue a proclamation of this observance.
