Becoming a soldier The clock was ringing so loudly it was like he was actually screaming at me I reached my hand and slapped it I did not want the night to be over already I knew that this morning would be very long and grueling the morning that I have been waiting for in a great fear for several months It was the morning I was drafted to the army In Israel every boy and girl who reaches eighteen have to join the army It is mandatory and it is for a minimum of three years for boys and a year and eight months for girls During the eleventh and twelfth grade you go through several classification processes in which the army determines where will everyone serve The process of classification includes several tests some of them are physical and others are in math and Hebrew So on the day you are drafted you suppose to know where you are going to serve and what you are going to do at least for the first few months of your service For me the experience of joining the army at the age of eighteen was very difficult I felt that these are my best years but instead of taking advantage of them I am going to the army In other countries when a person reaches eighteen he is usually going to college and start his life I on the other hand was about to do one of the most demanding mission a man can do I postponed my recruiting day as long as I could in order to travel and enjoy as much as I could in that time I knew that I was going to be a fighter and give up the convenience of being home everyday eat home made food go out with friends sleep in my bed Instead I would sleep in a tent or lie on the ground on a stake
