Benjamin Bramaier, 22, made Aliyah several days ago from the United States with the goal of drafting into the IDF as a lone soldier. After having lived a Jewish life in Texas with his two fathers who adopted him at birth, Benjamin recently discovered his background is especially interesting.

"Two months ago, I discovered that I was Native American," said Bramaier, who came to Israel as part of Garin Tzabar, a program through the Israeli Scouts and the Ministry of Absorption which helps facilitate joining the IDF.
