Living Voices - Memories of Jewish War Veterans



Jersey Shore Jewish War Veterans (JWV) Post 125 has had a long and illustrious history. This group of dedicated men and women, supported by an active Ladies Auxiliary, continues to play a vital role as they undertake numerous programs and missions which serve to benefit all veterans as well as the community.

Accomplishments include raising funds for charities, helping hospitalized vets and decorating graves of fellow veterans at Monmouth County cemeteries on Memorial Day. The JWV continues to ...
have an active involvement with Troop 71, Boy Scouts of America, and annually attend several Memorial Day services. Additionally, they will be sponsoring a job fair for veterans at Brookdale Community College on August 27.

On Tuesday, November 13 at 7:15pm at the old Oakhurst School Auditorium, 163 Monmouth Road, a panel of six JWV members who served in World War II, the Korean conflict and the Vietnam War tell about their experiences in a guided interview format.

Marie Curtis will serve as moderator for the program. Ample time will also be allotted for a question and answer session with the audience.

The presentation is open to the public free of charge, however donations are always appreciated. Also, refreshments will be served. Please bring a non-perishable item for the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
