Paul Jeser's plaque on Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem
First - about the JNF project on Ammunition Hill. If you are not familiar with the significance of Ammunition Hill please open: http://www.jnf.org/work-we-do/

Throughout history, Jews have fought in defense of their countries. As a tribute, the Jewish National Fund has erected a Wall of Honor at Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem, site of the pivotal 1967 battle that made possible the reunification of the city. Individual plaques can be purchased to honor Jewish soldiers who served or serve in the military of any country. Proceeds are going to develop and renovate the museum and battlegrounds and create a computerized datacenter, a library, an archive, an exhibition hall, and a center for assemblies and conferences.
The Wall of Honor at Ammunition Hill is a tribute to the heroism and courage of Jewish soldiers who, throughout history, have fought in defense of their countries far beyond their proportions to the general population.
I am very pleased to have a plaque placed on this special wall in recognition of my Military Service (2 pictures follow).
