JWA national head visits RI


On Oct. 13, National Commander Harvey Weiner met with members of the Rhode Island department Jewish War Veterans USA. He discussed his goals for the year, his vision for the future and offered veterans an opportunity to ask questions.  

He also shared his experiences returning home from Vietnam and the disrespect he encountered while traveling in uniform through airports.

The national office and the Rhode Island department share the same goal: to reach out to Vietnam veterans; active duty, National Guard, boots on the ground, or those who served elsewhere.  We want to thank them for their service and let them know that their service is just as appreciated as those veterans who served in previous wars.  

All veterans, no matter when they served, including those currently serving, should be respected and appreciated for the sacrifices they made in the service of our country.
