Abstract

Can the military serve as tool for socialization? Despite scholarship indicating military service has a limited socialization effect on soldiers, many Israelis believe that their military service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has caused them to accept members of out groups as part of their own in group. The following paper explores the effect of service friendships and asks: are veterans who had diverse friendships during their service more likely to have diverse friendships in the future? If so, do they attribute their ability and willingness to include others within their in group to their military service? Based on findings from a study of Israeli students (second and third year college and university students), the paper demonstrates that while indeed service friendships may be short lived, service alongside members of out groups has certain longer-term effects and influences aspects of the social perception of veterans.
