A few rare pictures: Gadi Eisenkot wearing the pin of the Legion of Merit on his uniform

 
A year after he was decorated with the Legion of Merit, Chief of Staff Lt. General Gadi Eisenkot, received General Joseph Dunford (C), the Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff in Tel Aviv. During this occasion Eisenkot had the pin of Commander of the Legion of Merit on his uniform, beneath the Israeli campaign ribbons. It seems that he does so only during meetings with US representatives.
