Hayley Nelson
I am 22 years old, I live in the USA and I want to move to and serve for my country Israel.
Either in the Army or possibly even Mossad, but I want to serve.
In other news, I am also a comedian (according to family and friends) and I sing.
I can’t play an instrument to save my life though.
Oh, and my Hebrew name is Unkayvah Bat Tzakarah
My main question is; how strict was your training?
Were you scrutinized about making your bed or cleaning up?
How much had to be perfect?
Did your superiors insult you and call you names?

Hello Hayley, nice to hear from you  :)
And funny to hear you’re also a comedian (in potential) :)

Regarding your questions

Military training, is indeed tough, especially for Funny People – commanders tend to let us do a lot of pushups :)
In order to create discipline in basic training, is indeed sometimes even scold you about nonsense,  and yes! Even for unmade bed :)

But still, it’s not the end of the world and after basic training ends, the commanders become you’re friends and you start to enjoy the good life :)

Regarding your second question

I will not tell you that there are no notes here and there, but it’s not like the movies,

The military has very strict laws regarding offending soldiers, and if the commander insult prominently soldier, he can withstand very severe disciplinary

I wish you good service, continue to be hilarious and use your skills to good things,

And do not forget me when you get into the mossad :)

Thank you for writing to me

Yaron.
