Harry Ettlinger - Monument Man

(Video by Jerry McCrea / The Star-Ledger)
[Thanks to MSN For Heads-up].
Harry Ettlinger, a German-born Jew who immigrated to Newark with his family in 1938, is one of just nine surviving members of the Monuments Men, a group of approximately 350 men and women from 13 Allied nations who worked in the recovery effort of Europe's cultural treasures from Nazi looting and the ravages of war.

Stirring story - despite the fact that much of the missing cultural property (including much from Poland) was never found.

So how many US "Monument men" were working in Iraq after 2003 and Afghanistan?
