Boston: No One Left Behind

No One Left Behind: An Army Officer and Afghan Interpreter Reunited – NLC Boston, Truman and Boston International

Join us at this joint lecture and social event for our three groups. Boston International, a non-profit organization that brings cutting-edge thinking on world affairs to Boston’s risingstars welcomes Matt Zeller and Janis Shinwari. Matt Zeller, an Army veteran and former CIA officer, made it his personal mission to bring his Afghan interpreter, Janis Shinwari, and his family to the United States. Shinwari had saved Zeller’s life on the battlefield years earlier, and Zeller knew that those who had worked with the U.S., including his friend, were targets of the Taliban for aiding the enemy. After years of bureaucratic red tape, road blocks and disappointment in securing a visa, Zeller and Shinwari were reunited in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, 29 October, 2013. Matt and Janis are sharing their story with us on March 27th.
