On the last day of his service, Rami's minesweeping unit was training the replacement unit. They entered a dangerous minefield and instantly 2 of his fellow soldiers were killed. Their bodies exploded and the blood and limbs were everywhere. Unable to move, afraid of how many more mines in the area, they had to freeze in place for 2 hours while waiting for rescue. 2 hours of standing motionless while covered in blood, guts and body parts of their friends and seeing what was left of their dead bodies next to them. He later suffered PTSD which included severe depression, memory loss and horrific nightmares.
