Once Again Inclusion in the Army-Israel not the USA

When a nation works towards inclusion it can be done. Please note that the army in Israel is a major milestone in the lives of young people. The friendships and associations made during your time in the army lasts a lifetime. That is why this program, among others (Here, Here), to include those with special needs into this major life event is so important.

FYI- they mention the beret trek at the end of the post. That is the hike that those in basic training endure right before graduation. This Trek was shorter than the average, but just as celebrated.

After watching this video, and others like it, it is so apparent that we, the USA, have a long way to go in understanding the importance to society of those with special needs.
