End of an Era

The IDF is handing over control of Megiddo Prison to the Prison service. Soon to follow are Ketziot and Ofer.

Ketziot and Megiddo were the places I did my first duties in the army, what a relief there'll be no more chance of miluim there - Ketziot in particular is the most abysmal hole - 50 miles past the back end of nowhere in a howling wilderness (literally, jackals all over) "improved" by mile upon mile of barbed wire and chain-link fence. Just the name brings back memories of near-suicidal boredom.

Of course, afterwards I was transferred to guard in the Be'er Sheva jail which is officially under the Prison Service so...oh's still possible I'll end up guarding Ketziot.
