Summary
"Master Sergeant Changiz Lahidji served on Special Forces A-teams longer than anyone in history, completing more than a hundred combat missions in Afghanistan. Changiz is a Special Forces legend. He also happens to be the first Muslim Green Beret. Changiz served this country starting with Operation Eagle Claw in 1980, when he entered Tehran on a one-man mission to spy on Iranian soldiers guarding the US Embassy, where fifty-two US diplomats were being held hostage. Three years later, he was in Beirut, Lebanon, when a suicide car bomb exploded in front of the US Embassy, killing eighty-three people. Weeks after that, he was shot by Hezbollah terrorists on a night mission. In Operation Iraqi Freedom, he led a convoy that was ambushed on its way to Fallujah. He was clearing houses in Mogadishu, Somalia, in October 1993 when a US Black Hawk helicopter was shot down fifty feet away from him in the incident that inspired Black Hawk Down. In 2002 he dressed as a farmer and snuck into eastern Afghanistan and located Osama bin Laden for the US government. Changiz earned numerous commendations, including the Special Forces Legion of Merit, and many others. Last year he was nominated for induction into the Military Intelligence Hall of Fame and cited as "the finest noncommissioned officer to ever serve in Special Forces." His story is an amazing tale of perseverance and courage, of combat and one man's love of his adopted country."--
