This is an excellent summary of an ARNG unit in action, as well as a colourful portrayal of the equipment being used by National Guard units in Iraq. 2) Undefeated in Battle - Elite IDF Tzanhamin Paratroopers Of any military force in the world, few nations can equal the combat experience of Israel.
