Inside the IDF: American veterans visit the IDF

Just in time for Memorial Day in the U.S. (and for our latest Inside the IDF feature), the IDF Blog posted some awesome images of a trip to Israel by U.S. veterans.

The blog explains, “A delegation of retired American generals and admirals visited Israel this month in order to meet with senior political and military officials, understand the security challenges that Israel faces and learn more about the U.S.-Israel strategic alliance…. The retired U.S. officers visited all of Israel’s borders and were briefed by senior IDF commanders on all fronts.”

    I believe there are yet a lot of God fearing people in the states,and that it is the media that makes it worse,And we will have to make our voices heard.The country was founded on the principles of the Bible and I pray that a revival will soon hit the land.

    We stand with you Israel. So proud that our retired officers and Generals are showing their support. The war is not lost. The battle is the Lord’s. Take hope! Your redemption draws nigh.

      I agree with you completely, but the only US leader that has turned his back on Israel is Barak Hussein Obama, the closet Muslim.
