Veterans Day - Thank You


As we do each year on Veteran's Day, we take a moment to remember, reflect, and express appreciation to all of the brave men and women who have served in the armed forces of the United States of America.

Jews have played an active and key role in the military of the United States since they first arrived from New Amsterdam in 1654. From that time until today, Jews have risen to the highest ranks and have served with valor and distinction in defense of this great country.

Click here to view a list of American Jewish soldiers who have been killed defending this great country in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This link (http://www.library.fau.edu/depts/spc/brody_military.pdf) points to an online exhibit focusing on Jews in the American military. It was put together by Seymor "Sy" Brody and it tells the story of how Jews became a part of the armed forces of America (both before and after the declaration of Independence in 1776).

After you read the story, click here to view stories that Jewish war veterans who served during WWII shared with the museum as part our "Ours To Fight For: American Jews In The Second World War" exhibit.

It will serve to foster an even greater appreciation for all of the United States soldiers who have and continue to protect this great country. Most of all, when we see a Veteran, and say Thank You - we will mean it.



Thank You
