THE IDF’S BARDELAS BATTALION AND THEIR PASSION TO PROTECT
When the men and women soldiers of the Bardelas battalion first came to the border, they lived in tents. Now they’ve settled in to a routine of a desert base, with caravans as offices and a fence to cordon off the area. Soldiers in uniform, M-16s slung over their shoulders are talking amid the heat of a pleasant October day. It’s fall on the Israel-Egyptian border and the local commander Lt.- Col. Shachar Nahmani is preparing to take his jeep out to visit some of soldiers in the field.
