I was wounded in Operation Tzuk Eitan On the fifth day of the operation, we entered a neighborhood called Beit Hanoun to find a "safe house" to rest. After two hours inside the house, an ambulance pulled up next to the house. Out of the ambulance came three terrorists one with a rocket launcher on their shoulder. We grabbed an anti-tank missile into the house we were in and it physically scraped across my face as it flew past me. I had a crushing of the entire left side of the jaw I lost teeth and part of my lower lip was torn off. I did one 8 hour surgery that day and many more surgeries over two years. I still go to the hospital once a month.
