In boot camp there is a week called ‘Purity of the rifle’ we were sent to a base in the north of the country for training in how to respond to civilians in what was essentially a course in army ethics.
It was fun, the base wasn’t for combat soldiers but a place where new immigrants were taught Hebrew and where soldiers from bad backgrounds were sent to gain an education and to receive light duties.

The base was located on a hilltop over looking a couple of Arab villages and presented a panoramic view of the fields below. The base was only really distinguishable for this and the appaling quality of the food served there.
