August 9 marked IDF Reservists' Appreciation Day, a day of gratitude for those who continue to contribute to Israel's security. The IDF salutes its reserve forces for their sacrifice and spirit of volunteerism, perpetually serving and protecting Israel's citizens. 14% of reservists today are women; 72% have pursued post-secondary education.
Based on past experience, it is estimated that in case of national emergency, the rate of reporting for duty will reach 110% as many former reservists voluntarily report for duty.
