    I haven't been perusing the boards much lately, and on the eve of my induction I wanted to drop a quick message to explain why it's unlikely I will be posting in the near future (although I might have internet some weekends when I'm at home).

    I have volunteered for 1 year and 9 months in the Israeli military, and my service begins tomorrow! The first three months are a course for new immigrants, and after that it is likely I will be either in the West Bank or Gaza as an infantry soldier.

    When I was in college I created alot of threads dealing with how to squeeze the most out of life and really do something interesting and challenging. I really love my life now, and I'm ready to challenge myself in new and interesting ways in the army! I wish this same feeling to all of you on JSF, and I thank you for your wisdom, humor, and friendships!
    I'll still be lurking around here on occasion, and I encourage you all to keep in touch: IsraeliHoosier@gmail.com.
    Keep fit and keep smiling,
    -Andrew

    I remember when we were first on this site, Andy. You were a slightly lost college kid wondering what to do with your life... I'm absolutely impressed by the determination I've seen in you the past year and a half as you expatriated.

    Be safe, my friend. And when you find yourself near a computer, stop by and let us know how things are going.
