They are brave men. They are protecting the country against the attacks. They are very disciplined people, they wake up early, and they get dressed quickly.

They are the finest fighting force; they dedicate themselves to achieving the mission for which they are tasked. 

They are the best people from whom we can learn discipline. They push you so hard you find that your limits are much, actually much higher than you had ever imagined.
