Brigadier-General Nechemia Sokal
Whether by land, air, sea or below ground; the IDF must ensure Israel’s security. As the current Chief of Staff for the IDF Technological and Logistical Branch, B.G. Sokal provided declassified briefings on the methods through which the IDF maintains constant readiness and the counter tunnel technology he oversees along the Israel-Gazan border.
Ambassador Arthur Koll
Launching our Diplomatic Track, O.S.S.

Presenting a key Israeli perspective on the election of President-Elect Trump, Ambassador Koll briefed broad audiences and focus groups alike.
Tour Recaps, Spring Semester, 2016
Major General (ret.) Noam Tibon
As the immediate past Commander of the Northern Formation of the I.D.F. and Senior Policy & Security Advisor to Our Soldiers Speak, Major-General Noam Tibon (Ret.) lectured at key policy and congressional venues about the threat posed by ISIS to the State of Israel and the global effort required to bring about their swift demise.
Brigadier-General Shaul Gordon
Taking a further, unprecedented step, O.S.S. Legal partnered with the current Senior Legal Advisor of the Israeli National Police to convene lectures on the policies currently practiced by law enforcement officers of the State of Israel. Issues such as house demolitions, administrative detention and the rules of engagement were discussed at length at select law schools and on capitol hill.
From campus to Congress, we felt privileged to bring the view of the I.N.P. to the policy makers of today and tomorrow.
Brigadier-General Zvika Haimovitch
Israel faces the looming threat of more than 100,000 rockets and missiles stockpiled on our borders and the I.D.F. has made strategic adjustments in the wake of the J.C.P.O.A. with Iran.
Out of that context, O.S.S. ELITE brought the current Commander of the Israel Air-Defense Forces to brief key audiences on the airborne challenges faced by Israel and the I.D.F.
Colonel Dan Goldfus
Few individuals have the varied maritime and land-based experience of Col. Dan Goldfus, Commander of a classified brigade of the Northern Command.
He presented a rare prognostic analysis of what a future conflict with Hezbollah will require of the I.D.F., lecturing to the most elite audiences anywhere in the U.S.
Colonel Dr. Tarif Bader
Lecturing at medical schools, law schools, the V.A. Medical Center and for the Under Secretary of Health for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Col. Dr. Bader engaged in peer to peer presentations on subjects that included emergency medicine, international medical aid, the treatment of refugees and natural and man-made disaster preparedness.
On March 6th, 2016, Our Soldiers Speak held our Regional Conference in Manhattan, NY, featuring the Deputy Surgeon General of the IDF, Col. Dr. Tarif Bader & Commander of a classified brigade of the IDF Northern Command, Col. Dan Goldfus.
These extraordinary officers then dialogued in front of a capacity audience with Dr. David Samadi and Mr. Tony Badran respectively.
