What can the Air Force learn from the Navy that will also be useful to the Infantry? Quite a bit, apparently.

For the first time in a decade, the IDF (Zahal) is expected to hold in December a training conference in which training authorities from all branches of the army will participate.

The goal is to increase dialogue between authorities and to ultimately improve the level of training of soldiers.

“This essentially will be a multi-functional conference involving training in all parts of the army,” said the IDF (Zahal)’s officer in charge of training and safety. “We hope this will become a permanent annual event.”
