"Men sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."-George Orwell
Tomorrow is a day we remember and honor all of the troops in the US Armed Forces who have given their lives for all of our freedoms (including the right to bear arms...). If you are so inclined to pay special homage and support to our Jewish troops their are a few web sites you might want to check out:
Jewish War Veterans of the US (http://www.jwv.org/)
This organization once published a book called "Jews in American Wars," and I was lucky to find a copy recently. It covers Jewish service from the Revolution forward, a great read if you can find it! They also have a newsletter with great historical entries, and a recent edition identifies Jewish soldiers fallen in our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Kosher Troops Care packages to US Jewish Soldiers (http://www.koshertroops.com/index.html)
National Museum of American Jewish Military History (http://www.nmajmh.org/)
Jews in Green (http://www.jewsingreen.com/)
May G-d bless our troops.
