As well, meet four members of IDF’s Elite Unit 669 - the Airborne Rescue And Evacuation Unit. This unit has been active across the world, including in Lebanon, Turkey, Nepal, and Bulgaria. The defining factor of each member of 669 is the ability to make difficult decisions under pressure, and every member is expected to be a leader - all unit soldiers must pass a commander's course during their training. Hear their stories first-hand at this unique event.
