In July of 1976, Sassy Reuven, a veteran of the Israel Defense Special Operation Forces, participated in the famed Entebbe counter-terrorist hostage-rescue mission code named Operation Thunderbolt, flying thousands of miles over enemy territory to rescue Jewish hostages being held by terrorists in Uganda.
Sassy was the second soldier to jump out of the Hercules C130 transport aircraft as it slowly taxied on the Entebbe airport runway. 100 Israeli commandos stormed the airport and miraculously rescued 102 people who were taken hostage when an Air France airliner was hijacked by Arab terrorists and flown to an airport in Uganda, ruled at the time by infamous dictator Idi Amin.
Sassy's story is the story of Israel's courageous fight to live in freedom and G‑d's miraculous hand in its survival. Sassy lives in Calabasas, CA with his wife Susan. They are the proud parents of three children.
