Gantz: Fallen Are With Us At Every Step

Speaking at the opening Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day) ceremony at the Kotel, IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz said, “From our nation’s wall of memory that we stand before tonight, from these stones of hope that have accompanied our country in our fight for life and our dreams of peace, from this place where past, present and future meet – the young faces of your beloved sons and daughters look out at us, full of life, the faithful servants of the Jewish people. They are with us at every step, at every junction that life in this region throws at us. Their absence is felt in the ranks of the IDF, and in every area of Israeli society, the fight for which has not yet finished.”
