Sgt. Steinberg's Mother: We Are Proud of Our Son Who Fought for His People


During the funeral for lone soldier Sgt. Max Steinberg, which is taking place at Mt. Herzl, his bereaved mother placed her son's Golani headgear on her head, and said, "We want to thank all of you who have come to the funeral today."

"We are proud of our son, who fought for Am Yisrael.  Max believed that one day he would be able to make Israel his home. When he was called to the army, he told them, 'or you make me a Golani, or I'm going back home!' she added.
