Marking IDF Reserves Appreciation Day, Colonel (Res.) Moshe Peled related his IDF experience, from Paratroopers to Armored Corps to transporting tanks. “I commanded Paratrooper Division 55 that liberated the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. Despite my secular background, I couldn’t hold back my emotions, seeing the great rabbis and leaders who flocked to the Kotel. I knew this was a tremendously historic moment for the nation.”
Peled has requested the IDF not to discuss retirement from reserve duty with him before age 75.
