Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

I write in response to Rabbi Staum’s “Historically Speaking” article on July 6, 2023. Being the parent of an active member of the U.S. Army, I am appalled at his extremely feeble attempt at humor comparing a dermatological issue to a war wound from Vietnam. My son works in Army mortuary affairs, has seen things you would never want to see and was stunned that Rabbi Staum would use sheker such as this. Can’t he explain what happened to his arm truthfully and not denigrate soldiers who have died or been permanently injured? I suppose he has not seen a disabled veteran.

He should be more respectful of the folks who voluntarily protect us.
