The saying in the IDF is “The army marches on its stomach,” stressing the importance of feeding combat soldiers well. That being the case, a soldier in Nachal Chareidi photographed the meal he and his colleagues were served, noting when it comes to chareidi soldiers there appears to be a different standard.
The photo was sent by a combat soldier from a chareidi unit serving in the field, stating the day began at 6:00am and this was breakfast. The soldier added “we didn’t even get a piece of bread,” and anyone who has served in the IDF knows there is usually an abundance of bread at all meals.
