      IDF Hero: Country Comes First

      IDF officer Aharon Karov spoke this week at the Nahalat Yitzchak yeshiva in Kfar Hassidim, in honor of “heroism month” at the school. Karov, who was critically wounded in the Cast Lead operation the day after his wedding, told his young audience, “Even if you know you’re going to war and there is a chance you’ll be wounded, you have to go to battle and to know that it’s for the country.”

      “Country comes first. That’s heroism to me,” he added. Karov related the story of his own injury and agonizing rehabilitation, and said, “I’m proud of every moment.”
