As a college student at Brown University, Jerry White spent his junior year abroad studying in Israel.

I like being the leader, the one out in front,” he recalls. “Then, boom! A huge explosion.” He had stepped on a land mine. As blood poured from his leg, White screamed, “I have no foot! I have no foot!”
