2nd Lt. Konstantin Gazaryan, of the 64th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron in Southwest Asia, said his reason for serving in the military is that it wouldn't be right if he didn't stand up and answer the call when his country needed him most, after his country was there for him. The lieutenant immigrated to the United States at the age of eight after being forced out of his birth country, Azerbaijan, during a time he and many news sources describe as genocide.
