A Letter of Mine in Haaretz - English

Army rubber bands

Regarding "Family Affair," Haaretz Magazine, December 18, 2009

In the Avrahamis' column on Squad A, Company 3, a wrong explanation was provided regarding the requirement for rubber bands used by soldiers on their uniform.

They are not, as written, "to hold up their socks," but rather to facilitate the tucking in of the cuffs of the pants, so as to keep them folded under the bands. It looks nicer that way.
