When Michael Yandell was 19 years old he was serving in the U.S. Army as a bomb disposal technician.
One morning in May 2004 he was on a routine mission in Iraq to clear explosive devices.
"We got a call very early in the morning. There'd been an explosion and there was a old rusted projectile in the middle of the road," Yandell says.
After seeing the projectile, Yandell says he picked it up, put it in the truck and started driving, with his team leader beside him.
