    True, he didn't speak about for 40 years, even thou he was working for the media.
    He ended the interview by saying that the helicopter pilot told him that the heli is a medicine but not a cure. The wounded will never be the same anymore. After that the reporter stopped functioning.

    [FONT=Times New Roman][*******#000000]Yes – but as I mentioned, I can’t and probably will never be able to talk about it.[/COLOR][/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman][*******#000000]So let’s leave it as it is [/COLOR][/FONT]

    I'd bet that every Israeli on this board knows someone who served in YKW. I have two cousins who served during YKW.

    Me, yes. Most Israelis have served. And I daresay. all the Israelis on this board have served.

    One cousin was in Golani, the other in Ordinance. The one who served in Golani fought in an AT unit against the Syrians. The other repaired tanks in the Sinai. A few pages back, Camera discusses in great detail the terribly important and heroic efforts by the Ordinance Corp to maintain battle damaged tanks. Until Camera's description of these events, I did not fully appreciate his role.

    Others here will have similar stories.

    I was a little kid, 5 yo, but I have a pic with him in his Centurion earlier in 73, so I assume he was in that Tank, I am sure it was in Sinai and in his tank. He was always my hero.
