Supporters of the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) gathered at the Yale Club on Monday, Feb. 13, for a special reception and briefing with former Israeli Defense Minister Lt. Gen. (Res.) Moshe Yaalon. A 37-year veteran of the IDF, Yaalon, known as “Bogie,” began his service in the Paratroopers Brigade and became a commander in Israel’s most elite special operations unit, Sayeret Matkal. He rose through the ranks, holding high-level command positions including chief of Israel’s military intelligence, head officer in charge of Israel’s Central Command, and chief of the general staff of the IDF.
