During the terror-filled years of 1973-1976 Sassy Reuben served in the Israel Defense Force’s elite “Red Beret” paratrooper unit. He participated in several covert operations in Israel’s mighty struggle against Arab terrorism. In July of 1976, Sassy participated in the famed Entebbe rescue mission, flying hundreds of miles over enemy territory to rescue Jewish hostages being held by terrorists in Uganda. His story is Israel’s story: courage, endurance, defiance and a willingness to sacrifice it all for the right to live in your homeland in freedom.
