Jewish War Veterans chapter has full schedule

by | Aug 30, 2013 | Uncategorized

At a recent meeting of Jewish War Veterans Post 158 held at the Simon Family JCC, Lt. Cdr. Oliver Herion gave a lecture on being an Explosive Ordnance Demolition Technician in the navy. One might say the discussion was dynamite!

Commander Herion also made an incredible contribution to the Post in the form of a national flag. The flag he presented flew above the headquarters of U.S. Forces Iraq at Al Faw Palace, the former palace of Saddam Hussein, on Jan. 1, 2010. Now, it will fly with honor at the meetings of JWV Post 158.

Also at the meeting, the newest Post Chaplain, Rabbi Sender Haber, was awarded the honor of Patron Member to the Post and also the Order of the Green Piping.

The Post’s next meeting will take place on Sept. 11 at 7 pm. The guest lecturer will be a member of the community, Melissa Schoenfeld, who was in the World Trade Center on that fateful day 12 years ago.

All are encouraged to attend! Spouses and family are more than welcome.
