Eating Ham for Uncle Sam

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/eating_ham_for_uncle_sam_20050218

Walking near my parents' home in Florida -- where I'm writing this column -- I noticed a hat with World War II insignias, much like the one my father sometimes wears, in the back window of a parked car. I'd just finished reading "GI JEWS: How World War II Changed a Generation" by Deborah Dash Moore, so the image of the hat really struck me, and I imagined that most men on this street must own similar versions.
