MK Shmuli to High Schoolers: Choose the Armored Corps

Member of Knesset Itzik Shmuli (Labor), who had to postpone his first parliamentary speech because of reserve duty, promoted enlistment in the Israel Defense Forces' armored corps on Monday.

Responding to low enlistment figures, he admitted on his Facebook page that there are no red boots like the ones the paratroopers wear or no Golani-style brown berets, but said only in the armored corps does one learn teamwork. Calling on undecided high-schoolers not to hesitate, he wrote, "The realization that you're part of a full fabric of parts and not working as an individual is what leads to achievements. 'The man in the tank will win' is not just a slogan but lovingly dedicated to the corps and its soldiers."
