    Character is often revealed in seemingly small gestures. Amid all the speculation about how retired Marine general James Mattis will manage to lead the behemoth called the Department of Defense, one personal experience I had a decade ago as a young staffer in the office of the Secretary of Defense sticks in my mind as a demonstration of Mattis's natural leadership ability. It was also an act of pure kindness I have never forgotten. After the invasion of Iraq in 2003, as large numbers of wounded warriors started to come home to the United States to recuperate at Walter Reed...

    The full testimony of the IDF soldier who last month shot dead a wounded Arab terrorist in Hevron reveals the reasons he decided to shoot the attacker, who mere minutes earlier together with an accomplice stabbed and wounded a soldier. On Monday night Channel 2 published the transcription of the soldier's testimony, which details his concerns that the terrorist was moving to detonate a hidden bomb belt - other soldiers at the scene, a Magen David Adom (MDA) investigative committee and a CID officer have all confirmed that concerns of a bomb belt had not been ruled out. The soldier,...

    The family of an Israeli soldier now under investigation after shooting a wounded terrorist has filed a complaint with the police after receiving death threats. Relatives of the soldier reported that a man with a discernibly Arabic accent called them on Saturday, making threatening statements and revealing private information about the family. On Thursday, two terrorists attacked an IDF soldier station in Hevron, stabbing him in the upper torso. Both terrorists were neutralized. As the wounded soldier was being carried away by paramedics, one of the neutralized terrorists began to move, leading several people at the scene to express concern....

    Two terrorists broke into the community of Eli, located in the Mateh Binyamin region, early Wednesday morning, where they attacked one of the local residents with a knife and clubs before fleeing the scene. The lightly wounded man was evacuated to the Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem with cuts in the head. Security forces who were called to the scene located the two terrorists a short time later and killed them. Forces then conducted large searches to make sure no additional terrorists were present. During the searches a handgun was found outside the town on the path the terrorists used...

  • Hotes Foundation donates advanced wheelchairs to wounded US Vets.

    After seeing FOX News commentator Bill O'Reilly's efforts to help severely wounded United States military veterans regain their mobility with all-terrain track wheelchairs, Richard Hotes was so moved by the gesture that he decided to help. Hotes Foundation volunteers created an obstacle course and, with the help of injured veterans, tested more than 10 types of track chairs. When none of the vehicles met the veterans' expectations, volunteers chose the best available option and worked on a complete redesign with the chairs' manufacturer. After a year of development and testing, a suitable track chair was created and Hotes Foundation volunteers...

    DES MOINES, Iowa – A fairly well-known anti-gun sheriff seems to have shot himself in the hand on Wednesday night while cleaning his firearm. Des Moines County Sheriff Mike Johnstone negligently discharged a round into his left hand, and was subsequently transported to the hospitals emergency room. His injury has been described by medical personnel as non-life threatening, but a hand surgeon was called in to assist. According to the Iowa Firearms Coalition, Johnstone has advocated for more and more gun-free zones. But perhaps Johnstone is most well-known for his statement from 5 years ago. When Iowa’s concealed carry law...

    Hadassah Medical Center issued an update Sunday morning on the conditions of the terror victims currently being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem and Hadassah Mount Scopus in Jerusalem.

Two patients remain hospitalized after suffering wounds in the brutal knife and gun attack on Tuesday aboard a bus traveling in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood. A 76-year-old man remains in critical condition from that attack, while a 69-year-old woman's condition has been defined as moderate. A 79-year-old...

    News of Americas military men and women were wounded and killed in Iraq and Afghanistan almost overwhelmed me on some days. I may have sounded strong when I was talking to the press, but sometimes I had to push my feelings way down in order to get any words out of my mouth to make statements and answer questions. The hardest days were when President Bush went to visit the wounded or families of the fallen. If it was tough for me, you can only imagine what it was like for the families and for a president who knew that...

    Two US military aircraft have been fired at during an evacuation mission in South Sudan, wounding two service personnel. One is said to be in a critical condition, and it is thought at least one of the planes was damaged. South Sudan has blamed the attack on renegade troops. Officials said the aircraft were heading to Bor, the capital of the state of Jonglei and the scene of some of the country's worst violence in the past week. After being fired at the planes turned around and headed to Kampala in Uganda. From there the wounded service personnel were flown...

    Vice President Joe Biden misstated the number of troops wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan by 47,000 at a Veterans Day event today at Arlington National Cemetary. Heres audio of his remarks: "Every day for the last six years, I ask my staff early in the morning to contact the Department of Defense to get a detailed report of the number of troops deployed, the number wounded, and the number killed. Not a general number; the exact number every day," said the vice president. "Because for every one of those warriors theres an entire family, extended family, back in America that...
