Booklet Lists Honor Roll of Jewish Service Men

Download PDF for this date

The second edition of a booklet containing the names and deeds of service men of Jewish faith who have been decorated for valor since Pearl Harbor was issued today by the National Jewish Welfare Board’s Bureau of War Records.

The names of four servicemen who have received two awards each are listed in the pamphlet. They are Lieutenants Roy Bright, of Eveleth, Minn., and Morris N. Friedman, of Grand Forks, N. D.; Sergeant Meyer Levin, of Brooklyn, and Radioman David Goodman, U.S.N., of Brooklyn. The names of all other service men of Jewish faith who have been honored during the war up to the time the pamphlet was printed were false noted, but it was observed that the folder is based on official records and is necessarily incomplete.
