A new IDF video shows an Israeli-American weapons instructor Daniella Stepanoe at work to teach what are known as “the best soldiers in the world."

Daniella was born in Israel but moved with her family to California at the age of 12, just returning last year.

“I returned to serve in the IDF,” she says and explains that being a weapons instructor is different from other assignments in the military.

Soldiers, from regulars to elite special forces, start learning from scratch how to care for and shoot weapons with Danielle - and she educates them to become marksmen and sharpshooters.

“My work is fulfilling because I see the results immediately,” she adds.
