Jewish soldiers have fought in all of America’s wars, starting with the Revolution, and have given their lives for their country. Max Pizer, the first soldier from Raleigh drafted for World War I, fought in battle at the Marne and Chateau Thierry.
“I had just become an American citizen. I wanted to serve my new country. So I signed up.”
Edward Leyton, High Point
