Nearly 1,700 veterans die every day in the United States. The number of veterans — especially from World War II — continue to dwindle every Veterans Day.
Weinstein Funeral Home of Wilmette, Piser Funeral Home of Skokie and B’Nai B’rith will honor Jewish World War II veterans with a breakfast from 10 a.m. to noon Friday at the DoubleTree Hotel, 9559 Skokie Blvd. Veterans Day is Sunday.
Although these institutions and others have paid tribute to Jewish war veterans in the past, this is the first such Veterans Day breakfast.
