Gear for IDF combat soldiers

Organized by: Roberto Torruella

I am asking for your help today to help supply new combat gear for my platoon of 18 soldiers. While the army does a great job in supplying the proper gear, budget constraints ensure that the equipment we receive will be very basic. The need has arisen, since our platoon has joined active duty in the Shomron area (a.k.a The West Bank), to go out and upgrade our current combat vests. At times, wearing two bulky vests (old IDF standard style) can act as a significant hindrance to everyday patrol. Recently, new vests have been produced, combining the two vests into a more comfortable, compact and safer All-in-one. Additionally, certain agility problems that come up in our line of work, can be alleviated. This is specifically critical to our new duty in the Shomron Area. I am hoping, if we raise enough funds, to replace the combat vests for me and my fellow soldiers. If we happen to raise more than the stated goal, there are other smaller yet just as essential gear we wish we could upgrade as well. Like I said before, the need for new gear arises based on everyday life in active duty. We were deployed two months ago and have many more months ahead. In our line of work better gear can be a life saving difference on a daily basis. I do not think that I am capable of expressing proper gratitude to those of you who desire to help. Your generosity would mean the world to me and my fellow soldiers. It's always a heartwarming feeling for soldiers to know that American Jews as well as Jews from around the world, stand behind us with whatever support they can share. Even a dollar or two can go a long way in our cause, and my fellow comrades and I will be forever thankful. Thank you again
