My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on March 15, 2014.
He is gone, but like all veterans certainly not forgotten.
Take a moment to ponder the enormous sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes and their families.
Millions and millions of people all over the world are forever in their debt.
Keep in mind that the U.S.military has freed more people on this earth from tyranny and evil than any other force. Certainly, American servicemen have done more for the cause of freedom and democracy than any so-called peace movement.
Whenever I see the brain-dead bumper sticker, “War is not the Answer,” I cringe, for war is frequently the only answer, the only moral response to evil.
G-d bless my father and all our veterans, living and dead.
G-d bless the United States of America.
