Little is said about the service of scouts. The devoted son of the Armenian people, Lieutenant Colonel of Western Armenia Vahagn Tumasyan is one of those fighters who deserve special attention. 

From the details of his long-term service, only episodes are known, however, his colleagues, teachers, and just acquaintances talk about Vahagn with delight and careless confidence. He was unique, very prepared and devoted to the whole essence of the Homeland. 

Vahagn Tumasyan was a historian by profession, but then decided to become a military soldier. In 2007 he served in the Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia, first as a sniper, and then as a scout. In 2020 during the Artsakh War, he was the first to discover Arab mercenaries and seized their documents. And in Jrakan, breaking through the blockade of the enemy “Ural”, saved the lives of many soldiers.
