Baptism By Fire

idf-captain-or-ben-yehudaMeet Israeli Defense Forces Captain Or Ben-Yehuda. Ben-Yehuda is not only young and attractive; she’s also an incredibly brave bad ass.

This young female IDF Captain has just been decorated with the country’s highest honor, the Medal of Valor, for her leadership and bravery in the face of an ambush by nearly two dozen terrorists near the Egyptian border.

Captain Ben-Yehuda was in charge of the Caracal Battalion which was stationed near the Israeli / Egyptian border. When three suspicious vehicles approached the battalion’s position, Captain Ben-Yehuda went with a driver to check them out.

As they approached the first vehicle, nearly two dozen armed men opened fire on their position in an ambush attack. Both Captain Ben-Yehuda and her driver were immediately shot in the volley of gunfire.

I think I’m in love.

Despite suffering from a gunshot wound, Captain Ben-Yehuda managed to get on the radio and call for backup, administer first aid to her driver and return several magazines worth of gunfire back at her attackers.

These are the heroic people our current president likes to snub on a regular basis. They are under constant threat, surrounded by enemies who want to exterminate them, and holding their own against the forces of evil. Meanwhile, Obama just sank a four-putt on a Hawaiian golf course.
