This is a short but very intense video. When we see clips like this, we tend to forget that all of those faces, those young, energetic soldiers that are racing, flying, parachuting, shooting in order to defend their country are real people. They are putting everything on the line. And so are their families. Their parents, their wives and children, their siblings. This is the human face of war.
An inconceivable sacrifice made by boys from age 18 until men in their 30’s and 40’s. To put a hold on studies, work, family and life and serve in the army in the regular service or reserve units to protect their country. To protect their country by risking their lives. This gives a new and broad perspective on the substance and spirit of the State of Israel.
