You are cordially invited: On February 3rd, the nonprofit HealthCare Chaplaincy Network will mark the annual Four Chaplains Day with a ceremony in New York City to honor the men and women who serve our nation and chaplains and to introduce a new resource to support military veterans, those currently serving, and their loved ones in times of spiritual need. 

We invite you to this free and private event and ask that you share this with others that you think may wish to attend.

When: February 3, 2015 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Where: The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum: Allison & Howard Lutnick 

Theater, Pier 86 at West 46th Street and 12th Avenue, Manhattan

Registration is required, because seating is limited.  

Please register here.

Please bring a photo ID with you that day.

Registered guests may afterwards for no charge self-tour the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum except for the Space Shuttle Enterprise Pavilion, which requires separate admission.

Background: Congress unanimously declared February 3rd as Four Chaplains Day in 1988 to commemorate the four U.S. Army chaplains of differing faiths who gave their lives to save others when the U.S.A.T. Dorchester, with 920 soldiers on board, was torpedoed by a German U-boat and sank on February 3, 1943.

On Four Chaplains Day - a day that emphasizes true valor and selflessness, and the meaning of supporting one another, HealthCare Chaplaincy Network will debut ChaplainCareforVeterans.org, a unique spiritual care education and supportive service tailored specifically for veterans, active service members, and their families. It will feature online information and resources, and one-to-one counseling to address painful feelings such as guilt, loneliness, anger and grief that can lead to spiritual distress. Central to this free and confidential service is Chat with a Chaplain, which allows individuals to connect with a professional multi-faith chaplain 24/7 via phone, Internet or video chat, regardless of religion or beliefs.

Scheduled speakers at the event will include Loree Sutton, M.D., Brigadier General, U.S. Army (Ret.), Commissioner, New York City Mayor's Office of Veterans' Affairs; Jamal Othman, Deputy Director, New York State Division of Veterans' Affairs; and Aurelia Greene, Deputy Bronx Borough President; and Richard E. Powers, MD, Medical Director, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Clinic. Birmingham, Alabama Veterans Administration Medical Center, Lawrence M. Herrmann, Four Chaplains Memorial Foundation Board of Directors
