November was a busy month for Austin JWV Post 757. The week of November 5, four local JWV members—Allen Lieberman, Bob Kaplan, Mike Miller and Gregg Philipson—met with local Jewish Girl Scout Troops for an engaging and interactive discussion with the scouts about the roles of Jewish service members and what it means to serve in the United States Armed Forces.
On Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11, Austin Post 757 participated in the annual city of Austin Veterans Day Parade. Mike London, Bob Kaplan, Gregg and Michelle Philipson, Mike Baum and Don Pripstein represented the Post and the community.
New members are always welcome to join JWV Austin Post 757. If you are Jewish and have served in the Armed Forces, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. ■
