Brigadier General Julius Klein Stripped of His Command; Was Leader of War Veterans

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Brigadier General Julius Klein, former president of the Jewish War Veterans of America, was stripped of his command this week-end when the Headquarters Company of the 109th Anti-Aircraft Brigade was ordered de-activated.

Gen. Klein attributed the action to a controversy that arose between him and his military superiors over his criticism of President Truman’s dismissal of General MacArthur. “Surely, it’s more than a little strange that the state should deactivate a major Guard unit while the nation is mobilizing,” he declared.
