Notifying the parents and giving his helicopter for the evacuation of him.

2. this shouldn't be considered a gesture it should be a duty
Benny Gantz is being treated as some kind of hero here for ordering his personal helicopter ( IDF property ) to turn round and take a wounded soldier to hospital.
That is something that should be considered a duty weather the helicopter is used by any soldier or even the PM himself on his way to a very important meeting.
The only thing that matters now is the soldier makes a full recovery.
3. Speedy recover 4 the solier & thanks 2 CoS Gantz!
Jew with Cojones ,
4. Gantz assists...
With such a heroic gesture, Rav Aluf Gantz should recieve the ITUR HA NAKNIK (decorat. of the salami).
With my best wishes for a speeeeeeedyyyyy recovery to that soldier.

5. Good on Gantz - a lot better then Barak at Tseelim !
When Barak was at Tseelim base as chief of staff there was an accident during a training for an operation to assassinate Saddam Hussein. 5 soldiers lost their lives and rather then staying to check on the injured he fled in his helicopter to avoid any responsibility
6. #2 Correct but....
Even duty should be acknoledged as extrodinary when done in such a way. Just because it is what he should have done doesn't make it any less heroic.

Now we know who is the General and who is the Ego!

10. 2 kinds of Generals in the M.E.
Those who order their soldiers to die for them and those who are ready to die for their soldiers.

12. Being an officer
I doubt that Gantz would consider this act anything special or heroic. This is what a good officer does -- at any rank.
In my 20-plus USAF active-duty and miluim years, I worked for generals who I think would do the same thing -- and one I know would.
The number of stars -- or felafels -- on your shoulders don't put even the lowliest private beneath your concern.
