This past Friday, June 15, 2019, corresponding to the Hebrew Date, 12 Sivan 5779
We remember 1st Lt. Irvin B. Furman, United States Army Air Force. He entered the Service from Columbus, OH. He was declared Missing-in-Action, 12 Sivan 5704, which corresponds to Jun 3, 1944. He was awarded the Air Medal with 5 Oak Leaf Clusters and Commendation. His name is memorialized at the Manila American Military Cemetery, the Philippines. When we say Kaddish for 1st Lt. Furman, we say Kaddish for all the American-Jewish War Heroes, Killed-in-Action or Missing-in-Action, whose remains will never return home to be buried in American soil and who have yahrzeits this week.
