Hi, my name is Gilead, from Jerusalem.

Wanted to say that I love this forum.

As I am enlisting to the IDF next year, I would like to hear advices from Vets [ yes, there is difference between the armies of Israel and the US, but I do believe I have a lot to earn by listening to some of the older soliders from the US armed forces ]

The unit I aim to get in is Paratroopers recon team [ Sayeret 7 ]
Is your advice also talking about being a Hmuvee driver? Why is that?
It is just a small bit of military humor... The wheelbarrow can be called a truck and the driver gets stuck on the working end of said vehicle... I think its an age thing...

Are your Cigars Cuban's? :45: There is no right or wrong answer... If I was going to smoke a Cigar, I would want it to be a Cuban...

welcome....good to hear from you
..I was USMC for 8 years.....well, Israel has proven to be a HUGE winner--and against all odds:
''surrounded''
outnumbered in all categories
narrow front
etc

..hard to compare the two.....
..I would think the IDF has ''more'' experience = more per capita ....
..my advice: listen to the Israelis

Thanks everyone!

I just wanted to say: You got luck, living in the greatest country in the world.
Keep that this way.
I wish the hard times your society is going through [ Riots etc ] will end soon, and peace will be back upon the people

Love you all.

Welcome. IDF good for you. Everyone here needs to do at least basic training, they don't. I enlisted during Vietnam.

Welcome!
My advice:
When you get to your regular unit after basic training, make friends with the cook. You'll never regret it.

Yeah, 70% overweight, criminals or druggies. I'm sorry but you are an idiot if you believe that.

Military advice...

When going through Basic Training never, ever volunteer to be a truck driver...
