  1. Captain Zeller,

    I’m glad to see someone fighting to honor the promises we made to these brave people. I served as a Contingency Contracting Officer in Jordan from 06/2004 – 10/2004. While there I met an Iraqi citizen who realized I was in the military. He worked in an auto garage that I use to take my vehicle and those of the Army SF guys I was there to support. One day he got up the courage to tell me why he was in Jordan. The heartache on his face as he told me how he had to leave without a chance to even pack his belongings really touched me. Al Qaeda in Iraq found out he was working as an Interpreter for the US Army. He was on his way to base one morning when he was ambushed. A bullet grazed his head but he escaped and headed straight for the Jordanian border. Since he fled without being able to talk to the Calvary Unit he wasn’t paid. Through some research I was able to validate his story. He worked for a Unit out of Colorado and I spoke to Soldier he reported to. I hate I didn’t keep a Journal of the names and the actions taken but I was able to help him get the pay he missed when he had to flee.
