Ken Green also served in the U.S. Army while in Korea. He is listed in "Who's Who in America." His book also vividly describes the Humboldt Park neighborhood during the period when he grew up during the 1940's and 1950's and profiles famous and successful Jewish people who had their roots in that neighborhood.
