Israeli Defense Force
Though I am a born and raised U.S. citizen, I am also an Israeli citizen since my father is a born Israeli. As such, I felt it was my duty to protect the land of my ancestors and I decided to volunteer in the Israeli Defense Force. I served during the recent Gaza Strip War, but due to some ongoing medical problems I have, I had no choice but to accept the early release the Israeli Defense Force offerred me. Though I wanted to continue serving, my physical disabilities prevented me from doing so effectively. I still hold the Israeli Defense Force in high regard and I plan to continue to visit Israel as often as I can.
