When Noga Faerman was drafted into the Israeli army almost two years ago, she had no idea what her job would be. The fifth of six children, she grew up on a kibbutz along Israel’s border with the Gaza Strip.
After graduating high school, she spent a year doing volunteer work and then was drafted into the Eytanim battalion where she became an electrical technician dealing with operational communications.
“I knew absolutely nothing about this field and I had to learn everything from zero,” Faerman told The Media Line. “We are responsible for all of the communications in the army including the navy, the air force and intelligence.”
