Hello Fellow Doodlers!


Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that is observed on the last Monday of the month of May (May 28, 2012). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in military service.

World War II
Dates: 1939-1945
An astonishing 16,535,000 American men fought in World War II. But the deadliest conflict in human history was also notable for its staggering civilian casualties, due to the Holocaust and the only use of nuclear weapons in warfare.

Hundreds of thousands of elderly Jews in the former Soviet Union struggle just to survive. Imagine you are old and infirm, living on a meager pension of less than $100 per month. You need medicine to survive, but you cannot afford it because what little money you have goes toward food. A harsh winter is approaching, but you have no money to purchase heating fuel for your stove, the sole source of warmth in your tiny apartment. If you could only afford one of these — food, medicine, or heat — which would you choose? Fortunately, thanks to generous (International Fellowship of Christians and Jews) IFCJ donors who are providing basic necessities by supporting our Isaiah 58 program, thousands of people no longer have to make that choice.

TO THE TROOPS!

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of liberty.
- John F. Kennedy
