Website of the week - Jews in Green

There is a lot of great information on this site, both historical as well as ideas of how you can help Jewish servicemen today.

What is "Jews in Green"?
It is a website devoted to Jewish servicemembers: past, present, and future.

Jews in Green (JIG) is an idea I have had for a few years now. After enlisting in the Marine Corps at 18, serving for 9+ years and then making the transition to the officer ranks, I've come to realize that being a Jew in the service presents some unique challenges. My hope is that by creating this website, other Jews serving in our armed forces can learn what resources are available for them, share their experiences with one another, and offer support when needed.
