Day To Remember

IV orld War II is becoming a distant memory as that gener-
ation — who had their lives placed on hold for years in
the fight against tyranny — ages and passes on.
It was a war experience that younger Americans may
not understand, a war that was all encompassing. It was four years
long and had a major impact on every citizen, the entire country and
the world. Its scope, in comparison to the "police
action" in Korea, even the failure of Vietnam and
the blitzkrieg of the 1991 Gulf War, is mindbog-
gling.
When Al Rasof of West Bloomfield contacted
the Jewish News about his cousin's war exploits, we
were skeptical — not about Barney Ross, the hero,
but about a layman's effort to capture those hero-
ics. But make no mistake: Rasof has distilled a
narrative of heroism that touches every heart, and
also shows the•impact of a single night that mir-
rors the experience of thousands of ordinary peo-
ple who were thrust into war.
In addition, we report on two more Jewish veterans of World War
II. They represent a community spirit and sense of duty that is slowly
fading away.
As Veterans Day approaches — Monday, Nov. 11 — turn to page 70
for a few moments to relive a perilous era and honor the sacrifices our
families and neighbors made to ensure our freedom.
