Soldier Brings Light even After Death

A young soldier who died in training will bring light to others even after his death. The family of 19-year-old Yehosha Hafetz has decided to donate his corneas, according to IDF Radio.

Hafetz died while trying out for an elite unit. When he first enlisted he had chosen a non-elite unit to allow him to care for his ailing father; he decided to switch units after his father’s death.
