Remembering Jewish Veterans

For Veterans Day lets remember Maurice Rose, and the other 550,000 Jews who served in the armed forces of the United States during WWII

Major General Rose was the son of a Rabbi and the highest ranking Jew in the U.S army. He died leading his men at Paderman. Let's also remember the three WWII era Jewish soldiers who were awarded the military's highest distinction, the Congressional Medals of Honor - Ben Salomon, Isadore S. Jachman, and Raymond Zussman

Nowadays, we tend to forget about the rich Jewish life that existed in pre-war America, and we write out of existence Jewish American heroes like Rose who, also, were victims of the Nazis. 
Here's how the New York Times covered Rose's death:…
WASHINGTON, April 2 (AP)-- Maj. Gen. Maurice Rose, commander of the Third Armored Division, has been killed in action in Germany, the War Department announced today.
