    It was fun reading from all these contributors. It made my day. I don't suppose anyone here remembered the Isreali instructors or when you went cutting grass with your pen knife.

    For people who have finished their ICT cycle but is younger than 40 (non-officers) or 50 (officers).

    No need to go for in-camp anymore, but still can be called (unlikely) up for NS.
