Today, on February 25, marks the 155th anniversary of Andranik Ozanyan, a talented military commander and great son of the Armenian nation.

Andranik’s role in the liberation struggle of the Armenian people is invaluable. During his heroic life, he always supported his own nation, putting aside personal interest and happiness.

The commander said, “I have never strived for personal happiness and well-being in my life. I have always strived for one thing and fought for only one thing – the freedom and prosperity of my own people. I’m not looking for my own merit, and I just want the people I serve to be happy all my life”.

Sasun, Mush, Ardahan, Karin, Nakhichevan, Zangezur, and many other places are the places where the glorious commander was with his troops.

It is difficult to describe in a few words the deeds of the hero of the nation, and it is difficult to express the gratitude we have for him.

Happy birthday, brave and glorious child of the Armenian nation, your memory will always remain bright in our hearts, in our songs and books.
