The Jewish Welfare Board is creating a timeline on Facebook to show the history of Jews in the military, and to honor our contribution and service to our country.
I think this is a very cool project, and one that is probably well overdue. While I don’t think that Facebook is necessarily the best place for this to be done, if the response is large enough, it has huge potential to create a comprehensive photographic history of Jewish service that can be used in museums and history books across the world.
The search for photos is not only ones of yourself. They are also seeking some great photos of your parents, grandparents, and beyond. If you have something that you want to submit, head on over to their photo submission page.
