Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America


Winter 2003

In its longstanding role as the "Patriotic Voice of American Jewry," the Jewish War Veterans of the USA (JWV) supports our troops currently engaged in battle in the Gulf region and the President of the United States as Commander in Chief, who has mobilized them for the liberation of Iraq and the elimination of weapons of mass destruction. Now and at our recently concluded National Executive Council meeting, which ended on March 8, 2003, the JWV unanimously went on record supporting our troops and our President even before the outbreak of hostilities. A policy statement passed at the Council meetings stated: JWV supports our armed forces and the president of the United States, in the event he commits our armed forces as part of a willing coalition to use force to oust Saddam Hussein and destroy his weapons of mass destruction and the means of producing and storing the same and to have a regime change. Now that our armed forces are engaged in active combat, the JWV reaffirms its support for our troops and the policies that they are defending. At this perilous time in our history, it is vital that our young servicemen and women know that the American people and especially those who have come before them recognize, support, and appreciate their sacrifices. We are encouraging our posts and echelons throughout the country to organize rallies and meetings in conjunction with their municipal officials together with other veterans groups to show their support in a public and visible forum. We invite all Americans to join with us.
