This pictures shoes freshly recruited soldiers of one of the Israeli Special Forces, on their longest march yet - a few dozen killometers later, they all got their long awaited berrets. I took this picture the day before I finished my own 3 years of mandatory service in the same unit, after taking hundreds of pictures with my trusty TZ5. If that doesn't bode for the durability of a camera, I don't know what does.
