GETTING TO KNOW IZZY EZAGUI, THE WORLD’S ONLY ONE ARMED SPECIAL FORCES SHARP SHOOTER | Bella New York

Izzy Ezagui is a 19-year-old American who enlisted in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). During a mortar attack on the border of the Gaza Strip, he lost his arm. 
We sat down to get to know Izzy as he prepares to launch his memoir. In it, Ezagui recounts his tortuous trek through rehabilitation and then to re-enlistment as a squad commander in the IDF. He became the world’s only one-armed Special Forces sharpshooter. 
Since writing your book, what has been your favorite moment to date?

Let’s talk about dogs. I can’t get enough of my little guy, Punch. He’s a rowdy Shiba Inu, black & tan, and a total runt. But he doesn’t seem to notice—likes to play rough with the big dogs, which I love about him.

I’m going somewhere with this, I promise!

Punch and I see a lot of the same canines when we hit the park. He sniffs a lot of familiar butts, and, by extension, I see a lot of familiar humans. So, last week, this sweet couple comes over, grey whippet puppy yanking at the leash, and the girlfriend, she says, unabashedly, “Hey! We were doing a bit of online stalking and stumbled across your memoir. You wrote a memoir! We totally pre-purchased a copy…” And I’m thinking, Holy crap, you’re probably the first people ever to order Disarmed. And then I realize, Double holy crap. I’m an author. No turning back.
