This week the U.S. Army got an inside look at the Israeli Defense Forces – and vice versa – as the two armies combined for three weeks of drills, called The Austere Challenge 12.
The Austere Challenge 12 is a combined U.S.-Israel military exercise, in which the our two great armies work together to simulate and solve modern-day threats. The drill takes place every couple of years, and this year’s is the largest aerial defense exercise to take place.
According to the Jewish Exponent, “The exercise is scheduled to last three weeks and involve more than 3,500 American service personnel and 1,000 Israeli soldiers.”
Keep up the great work!
