stated Commander Rosenthal, "and as Jews, we pay particular homage to our
heroic Jewish war dead. We of the Jewish War Veterans are the custodians of the
records of their war deeds, but the entire Jewish community basks in the glory of
their achievements, therefore one hour a year to remember their names and
achievements is, in the very least, the duty and obligation of everyone. We have
placed American flags on each of their graves in the Detroit Metro area in every
cemetery, but the official ceremony will be at Machpelah." A short service will also be
conducted at 8:00 am at Oak Park City Hall.

we can NEVER allow ourselves to forget our fallen men and women of American
wars, who gave us this great legacy ... America."
