After picking up Grace, we’re heading off to my old Kibbutz, Bachan, where I lived while a soldier. Now my oldest “adopted” kibbutz brother is in the army!
West Bank View
Grace and I head to Bachan. Yuval drives, and his dad Marian points out the West Bank.
Marian, Grace and I stop in Netanya to visit my grandmother.
Beit Lid Junction
This junction was the site of terror attacks, most significantly, one that happened when I was a soldier. This used to be where I caught the bus to go to the army each week. Luckily, I was on weekend guard duty when the Beit Lid Junction attack happened… otherwise, I would’ve been there.
The folks at Kibbutz Bachan prepare to commemorate Israel’s fallen soldiers.
First Yom HaZikaron Siren
This was the first nation-wide siren commemorating Israel’s fallen soldiers. The second happens the following morning.
I thought I was taking a photo, but I was taking a video. These kids were babies when I last lived here!
This “cube” was my apartment when I was 18 years old.
