|Special Needs Troops in the IDF|
Israeli's are proud of their Defence Forces with good reason. Since the creation of the state, the struggling forces have gone from strength to strength, not only in defense, but in community outreach.
The world loves to accuse Israel of all things evil. It boggles the mind that regardless of the situation, we are expected to maintain a perfect record, and a higher standard than the rest of the world.
Even so, our young people strive on a daily basis to maintain that standard and hold their heads high, not only by defending our country, but by reaching out to people who need help.
One such project is "Great in Uniform". Set up ten years ago, its purpose is to integrate young people with disabilities into the IDF~first as volunteers and then as soldiers in every aspect, from the simple soldier's ID and uniform to working on military bases in Israel and doing the "Israel Trek" to earn their berets. Their training and work serves as part of their preparation for an independent life and their integration into Israeli society.
This is only one of the many things that Israel does for her people~All of them!
Great in Uniform~God Bless the Israel Defence Forces!
