Tributes to the valor of American Jewry were expressed by President Roosevelt and Governor Dewey in statements to the Jewish War Veterans of the U.S. on the occasion of the their 49th annual encampment which opens at the Hotel Commodore on October 5th.

In letters addressed to National Commander Archie H. Greenberg, President Roosevelt declared that the Jewish War Veterans “in peace and in war, over the forty-eight years since it was founded, have lived up to the highest traditions of loyalty and service” and Governor Dewey said that “in war, the Jewish Veterans created for themselves a record of valor in consonance with the noble traditions of Jewish history.”
