Yesterday’s naval officer training graduation ceremony broke a record. This time on the parade ground at the IDF Navy Training Base stood no fewer than 11 mechina (pre-military leadership academy) graduates!
The mechinot educate their students to serve with meaning and provide leadership in the IDF, as well as in civil society. Time after time, we’re happy and proud to see high percentages of mechina graduates among officer course and naval officer training graduates, and no less proud to see mechina graduates assuming leadership positions in civil society after their military service.
The meaningful year at mechina matures students, strengthens their leadership abilities and personal responsibility, and prepares them to give all they’ve got as they lead and take responsibility wherever they go.
Good luck to all our naval officers, mechina graduates and not! Take good care of yourselves and us.
