Jewish military chaplains commemorated

Rabbis have been part of our military chaplaincy since the 1860s and the Jewish Chaplain Council has been around since 1917.  And even though one of the famous four chaplains on the USS Dorchester in World War 2 was a Rabbi, there was no record of him on the memorials on Chaplains Hill at Arlington.  As of today, that has changed with the official unveiling of a memorial to the 14 Jewish chaplains who have died while serving their country.
