- He is 6-4″ and has a full head of hair
- He graduated outstanding student/athlete from West Point
- He was Captain of the ARMY Football team – yes, Football

Oh, and last but not least – he is a Proud YID! (Camp Ramah Alumn for all you Ramah fanatics!)
Mr. Neil Ravitz is that Jewish, real-life GI JOE cartoon character that we all dreamed about being as kids. He is living the dream (on that note: Which GI JOE character, if any, were Jewish? Any chance Lady Jaye had a bat mitzvah?)
Neil simply kicks ass – as an American and as a proud Jew. Oh asides from being featured in SI, he’s now an analyst at a global consulting firm. Does it get any better? Yes it does. The Army 1rst Leiutenant – who now is a captain in the PA Army National Guard – is in our National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame… sorry, for all you ladies out there – Neil is married with a daugther. If you wanna get in touch with Neil and talk about the Army, fighting in Iraq, College Football or GI JOE – post comments here… YO JOE!
