America: Brother

Matt Zeller and Janis Shinwari barely knew each other when Janis (An Afghan translator for the US Army) body checked Matt (Captain) to the ground, shot two approaching Taliban fighters and dragged him to safety, saving his life. What resulted was a new lease on life, and an incredible cross-cultural friendship. Their story was documented on Veteran’s Day 2017.
