It’s now over 7.5 years since my unabashedly glorious days  as a marching band geek, but I have to share the most impressive shot from the Israeli army’s marching performance at this year’s  official Yom Ha’atzmaut military ceremony at Har Herzl:

How the hell did they do that? Somehow I can’t imagine the East Brunswick High School marching band successfully forming the head of Theodore Herzl. Then again, these guys aren’t trying to play instruments at the same time as they’re marching. But still, wow. And HAPPY 62nd BIRTHDAY, ISRAEL! Wish I could be there to celebrate with you.
