Re: Rhode Island’s best kept secret (May 25)


I read the article by Ira Fleisher regarding the Jewish War Veterans. He mentions Post No. 23 which was started after World War II. There was another Post and Auxillary started then also, Post  No. 533 –  Sackin-Shocket. 

My parents, Phil and Becky Woled, along with several other couples, started  No. 533.  I don’t know if it still exists. I have fond memories as a child of meetings at my house, picnics and other functions and going with my father to sell poppys at Ann & Hope.
