Thanks for your effort. Images larger than thumbnail size would've been more appreciated though.

Wow, I just noticed this now! Thanks for posting these terrific pictures. In my offline life, I've studied Jewish World War II veterans extensively (including interviewing some of them). This is a topic that has seen some academic exploration over the past 10 years or so but relative to other groups, almost no research examines Jewish veterans exclusively.

If you are interested in learning more about this topic, I very highly recommend "GI Jews" by Deborah Dash Moore and "The Jewish Threat: Anti-semitic Politics Of The U.S. Army" by Joseph Bendersky.
