Absolutely beautiful

This video brought me to tears. None of those young men wanted to fight, to kill, or to die. They just wanted to protect their country, their homes and their families. May G'd bless them for the ultimate sacrifice they made, and may Israel continue to be a "light among the nations". Am Yisrael Chai.

Their ultimate sacrifice for the Jewish people everywhere

I cannot help but cry during this video watching not only the faces of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, but seeing the conditions underwhich they fought. My heart and deepest sympathies go out not only to their families, but all of Israel. One place of one of our dead heroes stood out for me. It turns out his parents are close neighbors of my best friend in Israel. I also applaud those "lone soldiers" who found Hashem's mission in life for themselves and fought bravely. My husband a 25 year US Marine Recon veteran from Vietnam era is now 70 and would have enlisted in a heartbeat. My son did his service in the 1990s in the Israeli Navy Commando unit. So, I know how parents feel seeing their children go off to war. For those who gave the ulitmate sacrifice for the Jewish People, may their memories be for a blessing.

No Words

No words, only heart felt sorrow that these young lives were taken and how words can't describe their sacrifice and bravery. Bless their families.

So Young

I listen with deep sadness and watch the faces of brave young men who have fallen. And though most of us may not call Israel home it will always be in our hearts.. A place we have visited and fallen in love with. Thankyou to all the members of the IDF for keeping Israel safe.
