The Four Chaplains: A World World II StoryIn honor of Veterans Day, the Tampa East Sertoma Club will perform a staged reading of THE FOUR CHAPLAINS: A WORLD WAR II STORY.

It was the evening of February 2, 1943, and the USAT Dorchester was crowded to capacity, carrying 902 servicemen.  A periscope broke the chilly Atlantic Waters.  Through the crosshairs, an officer aboard a German submarine U-2 spotted the Dorchester, and gave orders to fire the torpedoes. 

Many stories have been written about the heroic acts of four Army Chaplains on the troop transport.  One such story will be presented here.

This is a free, non-ticketed event. Seats are limited and first come, first serve. Presented by the Carrollwood Village HOAs.
