    Dear sir/madam:
    my name is Hasib Azizi 26 from kabul Afghanistan.
    I was assigned as linguist/interpreter for U.S Army with 101st ABN DIV.
    top guns 1st battalion,1-320th FAR, HHB on july/2/2010
    I start working with this team since day 1st of established cop stout.
    we faced many risk of different attacks by insurgents through direct and indirect attaks everyday.I have done many operations and patrols with HHB and faced more than 40 ambushes and fights during patrols.
    I was interpereting for 1H platoon or also known as 1st platoon.
    The platoon was leading by 1st Lt. todd weaver and i was his linguist.
    He was such great and gentle guy to both ANA and U.S.
    he was always been so brave when his team stack in ambush and engagement with insurgents.
    I was unarmed and feeling fear when firefight started.
    But he never made me scare and give me courage to be brave.
    I have a video showing clearly me and him that we stack in fierce firefight with insurgents in ARV Arghandab river valley in aug/2010
    after somedays i went on leave after two months of my assignment.
    when I was in KAF Kandahar airfield back from my leave,i heard that he is passed away and is no more in that platoon.
    i was about to shout and never believed he is not alive.
    Ofcourse its not easy for his family to forget the lovely moments they spent together ,I my self will never forget praying for him.
    We Afghans will never forget the sacrifices of American military that they fought and died for the freedom of our country and poor Afghan people and for rebuilding the country where there was more than 30 years civil war.

    I thanks again and apreciate for your services and supports to our people and country.
