Hagit Rhein, the mother of IDF Major Benaya Rhein came out against the cutting of reserve officer training in an interview on Wednesday. She told Arutz Sheva news that the army should take into consideration the necessary preparations needed in the event of an armed conflict. Her son was killed in the Second Lebanon War of 2006, a conflict with Hezbullah. It was announced this week that some aspects of reserve duty would be cut due to budgetary considerations. The army stated that the cuts would not effect their abilities.
