Halad, Moshe-Shlomo (“Moshik”)


Son of Yaakov and Sofia. He was born on 10 November 1946 in the city of Radautz, Romania, where he studied until the seventh grade and was an outstanding student, and he was also very successful in playing the violin. And soon absorbed the language, until he became a “sabra” for everything He continued his elementary studies at the Smilansky School in Rehovot and was an active participant in all sports activities such as running, volleyball and basketball After entering the ” Ort “in Rehovot increased his athletic activity, and Moshik was also a youth counselor in Maccabi and was very active in the Gadna training. From the ORT school, he went to study at the Air Force Technical School in Haifa. Who was the director of the Israel Air Force’s Liaison Bureau, met with him in her office, writes (in a booklet that appeared after they fell) about her impression of him during those days when she met young people before enlistment, and even younger people, who are looking for a way to Gadna: In finding a golden path between his consideration of the concerns of his parents and his relatives and his aspirations to integrate into the lives of our youth. I was impressed by his progress and absorption, as a good apprentice and talent man, in one of the toughest branches of the Air Force Technical School, and also in his ambition to be accepted into an aviation course. Later, as I grew older, I enjoyed his various roles as an officer and in the event we had cooperation and connections in the fulfillment of our various duties. He was one of those people who could create a loving atmosphere for him and his unit together. When news of the fall came to me, I was shocked, along with all the people who loved him. “I felt that the life of the young man, whose path of success was still ahead of him, had ended and that a guy who loved the army and his soldiers, a boy who was the pride of his parents, contributed to their lives.” In early 1965, at the beginning of his military service, Moshe-Shlomo spent a short time in an aviation course, but was later transferred to serve in maintenance positions at the air force base. In October 1966, he completed an officers’ course and was a third of the Super Paralon squadron for one year. When the Six-Day War broke out he was a management officer, helped establish a military unit and performed his duties with honors. After completing his assignment he returned to the squadron. In December 1968 he was transferred to the air force headquarters, but Moshe-Shlomo, who enjoyed working life with soldiers and military activity, could not adjust to his position and asked to be transferred to an operational unit. In May 1969 he was transferred to a unit in Sinai, as a management officer. He loved his unit very much and was attached to it. Devoted much of his energies and energies to the soldiers he treated as a friend and even as a father. He excelled in his goodness, his cheerfulness, his joy of life, and his behavior as equal to each person, especially his subordinates. As devoted and loyal to his job, he was devoted and loyal to his soldiers. On May 28, 1970, about two weeks after his engagement with his son’s choice and two months before his marriage, he fell in the line of duty. He was laid to rest in the cemetery in Rehovot. The commander of the unit wrote about him: “Only a year has passed since he came to us, full of energy and enthusiasm, for his new position in the unit, and as a commander of the administrative branch, he had to contact every officer and soldier in the unit. And to the commander of the unit, all of them received his devoted care. “- – Moshe is missing us in the unit, lacks the fresh spirit, which gave joy to every step.” His unit published a pamphlet in his memory, bearing the name “Moshe” and containing the words of his parents, sister, friends and commanders.
