Lunch & Learn with Joshua Kannon: Judaism in Today’s U.S. Military

Being in the military can be a challenge, being Jewish in the modern U.S. military just makes it more interesting. Joshua Kannon will talk on the experiences from his service including a Passover Seder in Saudi Arabia, getting to and from services in Korea, dealing with other service members who didn’t understand Yom Kippur, the rarity of Jewish Chaplains, why men have to shave in the military, and any other questions you have about being Jewish in the military. Kosher, vegetarian lunch provided.
Joshua Kannon enlisted in the U.S. Air Force at age 19, served in the U.S. Navy, and was attached to the U.S. Army. He served 7 years active duty (including 9/11). His assignments took him all over the country as well as overseas and had him working in a range of fields such as shipboard firefighter, generator mechanic, armorer, neurologist’s assistant, base defense training support, naval boarding team, and special forces support.
