As a relatively new resident of Atlanta, I was delighted to read the Nov. 15, 2020, article, “Former Armed Forces Chaplain Honors Vets.” Quite accurately and eruditely Rabbi Albert Slomowitz calls attention to the important commitment and involvement of our Jewish community to the defense of our country. We must always remember and thank our veterans (and their families), those currently serving in the military, for their patriotism and sacrifice.
To our Jewish community, I remind you that the Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America (the oldest U.S. veterans’ organization in America) will be celebrating its 150th anniversary next year! Our own Atlanta JWV Post 112 is 74 years old, having been founded in 1946.
