    I am drafting to michve alon should I bring ducktape and baby wipes?

    • Rachel

      If you draft to combat, you will receive duct tape. As for baby wipes, many people find them helpful anywhere you are in the army, so that is completely up to you.

    Where is the best place to buy army gear predraft?

    • Rachel

      There are many options, rikoshet or lamitiyel are usually two of the most popular stores that sell gear for army/drafting. They are not the cheapest options though, you should look around abroad first and online if you aren’t yet in Israel to find certain things, but keep in mind that the army gives you almost everything you will ever need during your service.

    Can I buy winter gear at the LSC?

    • Rachel

      The Lone Soldier Center sells subsidized neck warmers, hats, fleeces, and thermals for the winter.

  • Gavriel

    What about bedding for my first day at Michve Alon? I have a sleeping bag or is it required to bring bedding and sheets?

    • Rachel

      A sleeping bag is all you will need, but if you don’t have the army can supply (not highly recommended). If you prefer, you can bring sheets instead of a sleeping bag
