family and friends who have served our
My father told us a story of being in WW ll. The rabbi from his division was captured. His lieutenant said to leave him as he was 1 man and the lieutenant wasn't about to lose 6 to save 1. My dad went back alone, quietly captured each German soldier and rescued the rabbi. When the rabbi saw it was my father he asked dad why? After all I am a Jew. Dad said he looked him in the eye and said, so what? I'm an Indian! Now can we get our butts out of here? They took their prisoners back with them. 😊 Dad earned 6 more eagle feathers that day and a months KP but he said it was worth it. No matter what you call Him, God, Great Spirit, Greater Being, it all boils down to God and my father knew it. Rabbi Rosenblat agreed as he was the one dad saved.
