I feel like I need to clarify my previous post. I talked about being tired of training, essentially, but I didn’t mean that exactly. What I mean is that I am so excited and mentally prepared to finally get into the meat of this IDF matter that still being on a training base is kinda getting me down.
Don’t worry, I’m not upset or depressed or sad or disappointed. Everyone has to put in their time. I’m really not tired of the training, either. How could you be tired of jumping out of a moving armored personnel carrier while the machine gunner lays down heavy automatic cover fire? It doesn’t get much better than that, and besides actual war, that kind of experience is limited to your training cycle.
And moreover, I just heard from a very reliable source that our tekes kumta, or beret ceremony, which marks the end of our training base phase and off we go to the real deal, is going to be held on June 10th. Take a look at your calendar.
The hardest is still in front of me, in terms of training, but the timeframe is looking better every day. It's all about perspective.
