120 soldiers honored on Independence Day

For Independence Day, 120 soldiers were honored by president Reuven Rivlin:
120 outstanding soldiers were honored on Thursday at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem at an event marking the 67th anniversary of the creation of the state.

For the first time as chief of staff, Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot saluted the men and women in uniform, when each stepped forward to receive a citation plus a scholarship for higher education.

"Today we celebrate all voices of society," President Reuven Rivlin said to a cheering crowd. "We are celebrating our freedom to honor all voices together – regardless of our differences."

The annual Independence Day ceremony is the first for the president, who shook hands with each of the recipients.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
