Har Herzl Victim Receives Award in Hospital


First Sergeant Hagar Zohar, an air-defense instructor, was selected to receive the President's Award for Excellence but could not receive it on Independence Day because she was injured in the collapse of a lighting beam that took the life of First Lieutenant Hila Betzaleli of blessed memory during rehearsals for the ceremony on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem.

Air Force Commander Ido Nechushtan came to the hospital, Sunday, to present Zohar with her award.
