"Why did you take the guys out all night in the pouring rain?" I asked Avi Sampson, an elite-unit soldier who serves as a counselor and educator at Bet El's Israel Defense Forces Preparatory Academy.
"What do you mean? We had been waiting for a night of torrential rains to get them working together in tough conditions," he replied not understanding my question.
