    "Mathias, come over here!" shouted my commander, a stern man and one of the largest native-born Israelis I've ever encountered. As Mathis ran over to our group of instructors my commander asked if any of us knew who he was. We looked amongst ourselves and did not know what to make of his inquiry.
