Today is Yom Hazikaron (Israeli Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism Remembrance Day), the day on which Israel honors its fallen servicemen and women. Scheduling Yom Hazikaron right before Yom Ha-Atzma’ut (Israel Independence Day) is intended to remind people of the price paid for independence and of what was achieved with the soldiers’ sacrifice. The soldiers who manned this, and many other observation posts, not only watched for the enemy, but were watched by the enemy and were easy targets for their long-range batteries.
