prayer room poem

commemorated here
those who died in the torpedoing
of the uss dorchester
february 3, 1943

george fox
john washington
alexander goode
charles poling

died praying together
refusing the overcrowded lifeboats

their jackets given to others

four chaplains
a minister
a minister
a rabbi
a priest

so memorable a text
all that they could be
they were
