Hey everybody : )
Yesterday I read in one of the Israeli newspapers that some mysterious US soldiers came for training in the ADAM facility here in Israel. The Israli
staff who is responsible for the training said that the American soldiers looked very tough and strong but they whined a lot
ADAM is a military base located not far from Jerusalem, its the "home base" (I'm not sure whats the right word for it in english) of units like
Shimshon, Harov and Duchifat (which are combat units but they are not considered to be very good units. Units like Sayeret MATKAL, for example, are in
a whole different league), the IDF sniping school and the CT warefare school (where the real Israeli SF units train for a while) are also located
This is not the first time I hear about Israeli-American joint training, I know that some marines come here each year for training, and I also heard
rumors about american SF units who train with Israeli SF units.
I also found an interesting link with information about this:
I know its not uncommon for different countries to conduct joint training and exercises, but I just wondering if some of you might have some more
information about joint Israeli-American training. I would also like to hear your opinion about it.
