Israel Bonds Proudly Hosts Visit from 12 Wounded IDF Soldiers

As Israel commemorated the 70th anniversary of the Israel Defense Forces this week, Israel Bonds proudly hosted 12 IDF soldiers wounded in combat.  The soldiers, many of whom were injured in 2014’s Operation Protective Edge, met with members of the board of directors and staff during a May 8 visit to Bonds’ New York headquarters.  President and CEO Israel Maimon, a former Golani Brigade officer, called the presence of the soldiers - who gave harrowing personal accounts of courage under fire in defense of the Jewish state - “a great honor.” The visit was coordinated by the Belev Echad (One Heart) organization, in association with the Ministry of Finance.
