The 2 bochurim who were niftar are kedoshim shenehrgu al kiddush Hashem. They were protecting Klal Yisroel & we have tremendous Hakoras hatov to them. However, Bochurim who can function in a yeshiva have no place in Nachal Chareidi & it would be a terrible churbon if such a bachur would join. While we demonstrate against the Tziyonim’s attempt to force yeshiva bochrim inti the army, we certainly appreciate the mesiras nefesh of those who cannot make it in yeshiva.
Why not a Chareidi Hesder? At the very least let them learn IIDF battei midrash, give shiurim, put out sefarim, etc.
