One of the brave security officers who ran toward danger and saved lives on October 7th is Yossi, truly one of Israel’s Faces of Iron. When Hamas overran the area, Yossi jumped into action, heading out to the road and taking the fight to the terrorists. When Yossi was hit by a terrorist bullet, the flak jacket he wore from The Fellowship miraculously stopped the bullet, saving his life. Yossi thanks you for providing the support and strength that saved him and so many others from the Hamas attacks. “Every vest that you give saves a life.”
