We were in Bethlehem, Nokdim I believe it is called, near Nokdim. Shdema was the name of the base. A thing I've found out just now, during my reserve service, my company commander told me that before going in they would smoke drugs, he and some other officers. I saw things that were, in my view, immoral; I was really shocked by the irresponsibility. Because these were people some of whom I'd taken as responsible, certainly when dealing with human life, and humanity.
Did they say why they did drugs?No special reason, just for the kick. Before going out on a reconnaisance tour, something that was expected to warm up, they would sometimes smoke drugs. I don't know how often. It's a story he told me. At the time he told me this he was on drugs as well, so I don't know how credible it is, but in any case it is worrisome.
