Aryeh Wetherhorn received only one combat injury over the course of seven years in the US Navy and another seven in the Israel Navy.

It happened on the first day of the Six Day War in 1967. He was studying at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem that year, having completed college and three years of active service in the US military.
