VFI - What are the Accommodations Like?

The accommodations for both sleeping and eating are a bit different at each base. The one thing that the bases share, is that the accommodations can best be described as "spartan" or, "simple". While rooms are not co-ed, they can be dorm style or smaller. In each of the two bases I served at, there were four beds to a room so a high level of privacy, is something that should not be expected. Some of the rooms have air conditioning, some don't. I have done a lot of camping in my life, and it prepared me well for the Sar El experience. On one base, we shared our room with regular soldiers and on another, we volunteers had our own compound segregated away from the regular solders.         Click on the pictures below to see a larger view and read the descriptions.
