I'm so happy to be back home for the weekend...
Thank you for all your support, I really appreciate it.
The first days in the army are really tough mostly because a person has to adjust himself to a different way of life. My only problem is not really the physical part but it's being a way from home. I'm sure I'll get used to that. The faster the better.
My basic training base is in southern Israel. I'll be trained for two months. The conditions are ok considering the fact that I'm only a private going through basic training.
This week was pre-basic training which means that they are just taste a bit of what we will go through. Eventual I'll get a weapon and I'll be considered in army terms as a fighter.
After the two months of basic training I'll go through a month course which will prepare me for my job. In general my job will be sitting in front of a radar near one of Israel's borders and informing the forces if I see anything. My main aim is to inform the forces that a terrorist invaded Israel.
I'm really thrilled that I won't be a real fighter.
There is really a lot to tell so I tried to give the more important facts.
If you have any questions I'll be happy to answer.
It's great to be back!!!
