Just a few days ago I was present at the funeral of a friend of more than 70 years. We grew up together, and both served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War. He was buried in a veterans’ cemetery in South Florida in the next available gravesite.
I somewhat lamented the fact that in Baltimore, Jewish traditions are observed and that there is a separate section for Jewish servicemen at the Garrison Forest Veterans Cemetery (“Shocked,” Dec. 20). I am not shocked at all by this procedure, although I saw where Mr. Fisher is coming from. It’s all in the way you view a particular matter.
