IDF Donkey Mounted Rockets!

The Israeli State Archive has put on Youtube footage of the first and last IDF parades on Independance Day -

The First IDF Independence Day Parade:
Funnily enough the Jeeps that you see at around 2:10 are still being used by the IDF.  I also especially loved the Donkey- Mounted rockets you can see at around 2:30. Sadly at 3:00 the screen seems to go black.

 The last IDF Independence Day Parade:

 If you look at around 3:40 there is a really cute part where some youth movement is doing the Hora, and then some solo dancing.

Of course this being a religious blog, I can't help but comment that the Women's uniform seems awefully short in 1973...
