ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran Residents Participate in IAF Ceremony to mark 40-Year Anniversary of Entebbe Operation

For the second year in a row, residents of ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran were invited as honored guests to the graduation ceremony for IAF pilots at the nearby Hatzerim military base. 11 residents, together with their caregivers and National-Service girls, attended. The ceremony this year marked the 40th anniversary of the Entebbe Operation and, coincidentally, one of the participating residents was celebrating his 40th birthday on the same day.

The residents’ excitement at attending the ceremony could be clearly felt. Every time a family cheered, so did they; each time planes flew over, they waved their flags high in the air; with each song, they smiled, and some even called out the names of the new pilots, with great joy. It was a day of great pride for all involved, with our kids included in such an event.
