Did the Air Force really make training movies THIS cheesey??

It's like those really bad (so bad they were awesome) driver's ed movies I had to sit through in gym class...

Female Israeli soldiers disciplined for 'unbecoming behaviour' after posing for pictures

Four Israeli female soldiers have been disciplined after pictures of themselves dressed only in their underwear and combat gear were posted on Facebook.

The Israeli military said yesterday the group of women were punished for their 'unbecoming behaviour' after the pictures emerged on local news sites.

The images, published on Israeli news site Walla, showed the soldiers removing their fatigues to expose their underwear and back sides.

In another, five women posed in what appeared to be a barracks room, dressed only in helmets and a small amount of combat equipment.

Walla, which blurred the faces of the woman, said they were new recruits stationed on a base in southern Israel.

The incident is the latest in a string of episodes involving young Israeli soldiers on social media that have drawn reprimand from the military.

In a statement, the military said the young women had acted in a manner that showed 'unbecoming behaviour' for Israeli soldiers.

'The commanding officers disciplined the soldiers as they saw fitting,' it said.
