Having said all that, he was one of the toughest motherf*ckers I had the pleasure to serve with and his soldiers from all stages of his service simply idolized him.
From your list cottage and eggs were the only things that made it to Yahel. At 80 I remember bulking up on tea, riba, bread, olives, and halvah. Took me one or two Shabbatot to lay in a large supply of dried fruit roll from the TA Central Bus Station. Always found meals in the field and mivtsait way better than on base. Advanced training (931) didn't have a base, we lived full-time in Ein Darjah, but always ate well. 50 not so much.
Probably reposts but will give it a try nontheless...

Outgoing Samaria Brigade Commander Colonel Nimrod Aloni.
http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7...230801,00.htmlCol. Yarom served as an officer in Sayeret Golani. He lost his foot after stepping on a landmine during an operation in Lebanon. However, Yarom returned to active duty after his injury. During the Second Intifada, Yarom was injured again, this time after being shot in the abdomen. He managed to overcome this injury as well, and returned to Golani where he served as the commander of Egoz Unit and commander of the Reconnaissance Battalion during the Second Lebanon War.
It's not his fault, but I understand why he feels that way.
