Amichai, son of Miriam and Mordechai, was born on June 12, 1946 in Giv’atayim, the third generation of a family of pioneers and fighters. Amichai was drafted into the IDF in August 1964. He wanted to serve in the Paratroopers Corps or the Armored Corps, but due to impaired hearing and some of his friends at the boarding school, he served in various capacities in the Intelligence Corps and specialized in aerial photography, and during the Six-Day War he discovered many enemy targets and, thanks to him, our airplanes succeeded in destroying them. On October 20, 1973, at 4:00 PM, an enemy force of Egyptian tanks moved over an enemy base of missiles that was moving towards our forces to stop their advance. Amichai died in this battle and was laid to rest in the military cemetery in Kiryat Shaul. He left behind a wife and a two-and-a-half-year-old son, parents, a sister and a large family. After his fall, he was promoted to the rank of Major. On his actions during the Yom Kippur War, Amichai was awarded the Medal of Honor.
