According to the lively website Jews in Green, Jews served in WWII in numbers much higher than our representation in the general population; by someestimates, 4 to 5 percent of U.S. soldiers were Jews at a time when we constituted less than 2 percent of the population. And the significance of fighting for others’ liberty during their own celebration of freedom clearly wasn’t lost on them.
