I would like to thank [Seattle Friends of the Israel Defense Forces] for your generosity and for donating the battalion a mobile gym.
The gym is in constant use. Practicing at the gym allows [for] keeping a high level of physical fitness and battle readiness, and relieves the immense pressure of combat duty as well.
Your friendship is heartwarming and fills us with strength.
It’s an important message of unity from the American Jewish community to the IDF soldiers.
We hope you will visit the unit when you come to Israel. We would all like to thank you in person.
Commander, Keren Artillery Battalion
