Scott Rosenblum, account director at Trylon SMR, alerted me to the February 9th article “Profiles of Our Fallen: Readers Respond: Reflecting on the Lives of the American Jewish Service Members Who Died Fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan” by Maia Efrem.
Scott emailed: “The story is a special feature that coincides with upcoming 10th anniversary of the US military involvement in Afghanistan and the 8th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. The story includes profiles of the confirmed 37 Jewish men and women who have lost their lives in combat in both of these engagements.”
The article starts off with the following video after announcing that 10,000 Jewish soldiers currently serve in the U.S. military and that 37 have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001. The video tells the story of two of these heroes.
