    Great heart-warming post. Your son is my son. I thank him for his service with all my heart; what you do is ALMOST as valuable.

    Did he ever think of joining the British army ?

  • Ray Cook

    Er – no. British Army is a professional army, Israeli army is conscript and compulsory for most Israelis. Being in the IDF is not a career choice but a national duty. Being in the British Army is a career and a somewhat different experience.
