Master Sgt. “Roddie” Edmonds – the Non-Jewish, Jewish American hero
August 20, 2019 is Roddie Edmonds 100th birthday. Some people choose to acknowledge the day a person died to remember them. Instead the Jewish American Society for Historic Preservation has chosen to remember the day Roddie Edmonds was born. If he had not been born, more than 200 American Jewish G.I.s would have been murdered. There never would have been life to live on, to live on after them.
