with Israel’s Veterans
Our names are Segev and Yaniv, and Day-to-Day Heroes is our dream. We made aliyah from the US to Israel in 2013 and enlisted in the IDF. We both served in special forces units. During our service as lone soldiers, we quickly learned that there is a huge gap between what people in the US see about Israel’s security forces, and the truth. We teamed up with Ofer and Eden Salomon, the founding members of the non-profit organization “Gold Soldiers”. Together, we managed to build an all-star team of professionals who all share one goal: To bring to YOU the most high-quality, eye-opening, and in-depth perspective about Israel’s veterans that the world has EVER seen.

This act quickly made him the symbol of the Second Lebanon War.
