just to clarify , it is g-d that is the "real one " who defends Israel.
the soldiers just play a voluntary mission for g-d and play it through. they deserve credit because they chose to do it.
but it is g-d and only g-d that makes things possable

Thank You to Our Soldiers
Thank you to our soldiers who put their lives on the line for us every day! I thank you so much for every minute of it! My brothers and relatives are learning, and we are so thankful to every single soldier who puts his life on the line for us. We know that we can only be keeping the beis Knesset full because of our soldiers who are out there physically protecting us. We are truly so thankful to all our soldiers and we pray for all of you every day. We have tremendous appreciation and great respect for everything you do.

So very humbling
Thank you for producing this video and thereby shining a spotlight on these very special and inspiring individuals. Their heroism and total self-sacrifice is beyond breathtaking; it is truly humbling. May G-d heal their psychological wounds even as He heals their physical ones, and may their merits stand them and their families in good stead.
