The first Muslim Green Beret was also in Iran’s Special Forces | We Are The Mighty

Changiz Lahidiui, originally from Iran started out his dream of becoming a hero by guarding the Shah of Iran, but that was not enough for him. He then went on to move to California, establish a life there and join the Army. He earned his spot as a Green Beret. He had to deal with racism even from his own fellow soldiers but the exact reason why he was getting bullied, is the reason why he was able to intervene and help the U.S. Since he was from Iran and held an Iranian passport it was easier for him to blend in and complete missions discreetly and easily. He has completed over 100 missions and now works as a private contractor after writing his book, Full Battle Rattle: My Story As The Longest Serving A- List Soldier in American History.
