Memorial Day is this Monday, so we thought the right thing to do would be to pay tribute to five American Jewish soldiers from the big screen:
1. Noah Ackerman (“The Young Lions”)
Played by Montgomery Clift in the 1958 film, Noah Ackerman was a young Jew from the Bronx forced to deal with anti-Semitism coming from the enemy — but also in his own ranks.
