So You Have a Sense What is Happening Now

With all the backlog hereabouts, I want to post a quick note on what is actually happening right now in my service.

This last month saw a succession of m'sakmim, especially intense weeks designed to test and conclude our many months of training. The final and most severe week starts this Saturday night and runs through Thursday morning, when the last stretcher hikes concludes atop Masada and yours truly (if all goes according to plan) will finally be marked as a loham in the IDF. Needless to say, the time to tell stories and share hoorays comes after the doing is done. So for further details on next week, wait till it is in the past.
