Destinies

ABOUT MY GRANDFATHER, WHO WAS BOUGHT BY THE OTTOMAN GOLD COIN

Each of us is the heir to the sad and painful pages of our history, and Lebanon has its share of these pages.
Many centuries ago, the Armenian King Tigran conquered Lebanon, but after centuries, the people of that great king set foot on this soil as a migrant, survivor of torture and persecution. However, they never asked for alms and with their work rose to their feet, became loved and respected by the local population. Thousands of orphans, too, have found shelter in this land, in Dzhibile in an orphanage “Bird’s Nest” of Danish missionary Maria Yakubson, in other orphanages.

ARMENIANS IN THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION ARMY

He graduated from the Black Sea Higher Naval School after P.Nakhimov, then studied at the Naval Academy after Admiral N.Kuznetsov and the Military Academy of the General Staff of the Russian Federation.

WAR AND VICTORY OF OUR FATHERS

In my childhood years at home the most prohibited item for the children was the diary of my father of the war years. When my brother was 18 years old, he asked my father: “What did you want when you were 18?” He replied: “I was lying wounded in the mud and dreamed of a drink of cold water.”

FROM PAIN TO PRIDE

84-year-old Hovsep Poladyan was one of the “Nairi” primary school teachers in Tehran. 50 years ago, the school celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. In 1965 there were 1200 pupils at the school.

MY REVIVAL

We need to know the language of the enemy, to know his habits, mentality. Only then we can turn to any of its rebuff with his own language. Especially it is very necessary to the military. Now, in the era of the Internet, you can create contacts and pull a lot of information from there. Most of our students are able to read and write in these languages. So, everything is done to enrich the knowledge of our officers. I am sure that if necessary they can use it to “get to say” the enemy.
