U.S. President Harry Truman looks at a mural before a brief ceremony on Feb. 3, 1951, to dedicate the Four Chaplains Chapel, located in lower church of the Baptist Temple of Philadelphia, Pa. The mural in the Chapel honors four heroic chaplains who gave their lifeboats to others and died aboard the troopship USS Dorchester when it was hit by a torpedo in the North Atlantic in 1943. With the president are Gen. William J. “Wild Bill” Donovan, and the Rev. Daniel Poling, his back to camera, pastor of the chapel and father of one of the hero chaplains.
