                               RESOLUTION


 
    Commending Archbishop Desmond Tutu for being a recipient of the 
                 Immortal Chaplains Prize for Humanity.

Whereas the Immortal Chaplains Prize for Humanity was established by the 
        Immortal Chaplains Foundation to honor the memory of the four ``Immortal 
        Chaplains'' of World War II, Lieutenant George L. Fox, Methodist; 
        Lieutenant Alexander D. Goode, Jewish; Lieutenant John P. Washington, 
        Catholic; and Lieutenant Clark V. Poling, Dutch Reformed;
Whereas witnesses have verified that during the approximate 18 minutes the 
        United States Army transport Dorchester was sinking on February 3, 1943, 
        after being torpedoed off the coast of Greenland, the four chaplains 
        went from soldier to soldier calming fears and handing out life jackets 
        and guiding men to safety and when there were no more life jackets, they 
        removed their own life jackets and gave them to others to save their 
        lives and were last seen arm-in-arm in prayer on the hull of the ship;
Whereas many of the 230 men who survived owed their lives to these four 
        chaplains, and witnesses among them recounted the unique ecumenical 
        spirit and love for their fellow man these four demonstrated;
Whereas the Immortal Chaplains Prize for Humanity was created to ensure that the 
        spirit of these Chaplains is celebrated through a living memorial to be 
        awarded to those who have been willing to put their lives in danger to 
        grant assistance to persons of a different creed or color;
Whereas Archbishop Desmond Tutu served as Chairman of the Truth and 
        Reconciliation Commission in South Africa, which performed a historical 
        role and set a precedent in revealing the truth about atrocities 
        committed in the past and providing the means of a peaceful resolution 
        for the pain suffered by that nation;
Whereas Archbishop Desmond Tutu continues to defend the rights of the 
        downtrodden of many nations, exhibiting compassion to those of different 
        races and religious beliefs; and
Whereas it is proper and desirable to recognize that Archbishop Desmond Tutu's 
        actions are in keeping with the spirit of the ``Immortal Chaplains'': 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the Senate commends Archbishop Desmond Tutu for 
being a recipient of the Immortal Chaplains Prize for Humanity.
                                 <all>
