the Foundation

The Ghost Unit’s Alumni Association was established in July 2023 as a non-profit organization by veteran, Aviv Hazan. The Foundation serves as a cohesive platform, establishing a sense of community, along with support for veterans of the unit, who in its early stages may have been recruited from various other elite units of the IDF
