Golani Training Center Visit

(Click on any thumbnail in this blog to see full sized picture)

From the hospital we left for Hadera where we met up with the Golani Unit who took us to a training center where we presented the soldiers with the special tee shirts that they had requested as well as all of the flashlights that we brought with and finally the remaining canisters of home baked cookies.
They were so overcome with emotion that they presented us with personalized dog tags, Golani tee shirts, stickers, and specialized watch covers that block out reflection on the dial whilst in combat. There are 1500 trainees on the base and after thanking us profusely they requested that we obtain for them another 1500 flashlights as well as a list of other items that they will email us in the next day or two.
