Our soldiers almost never enjoy a "time out", not even during holiday times.
A "time out" is something that our soldiers very seldom enjoy because they are on call 24/7 even during those times when they do enjoy a breather from their operational duties. Our soldiers receive an extremely small allowance, which barely covers their basic personal needs, and are totally dependent on their parents. Every bit of support they receive, is very appreciated!
Israel traditionally celebrates Independence day by barbecuing. The forests, parks & even private gardens are all lierally converted into BBQ dens. Israel's citizens can freely celebrate, primarily due to our security personnel that sacrifice their time to ensure our freedom.
In honor of Israel's upcoming Independence Day celebrations, we would like to distribute free burger vouchers to soldiers so they can partake and enjoy a little respite from their day-to-day activities
