Israel is a nation of miracles

The most seemingly impossible things occur in Israel. It is a testament to the existence of God and all that is possible. Maybe that is why the nations so hate Israel.

A Free and Strong Israel

I was just a kid enlisting in the USAF in 1947, totally oblivious to this history being made. Now as an old retired military flyboy I can only say; God bless Israel and keep her strong and free. America could have no better friend and ally.

Not Only from USA

South African pilots and others played a huge part in flying for the Israeli Airforce in 1947/48 war of Independence . Dissappointing that only US jews given recognition in this video
