Roy ultimately wouldn�t make it out of Iraq. But his former captain, Hall, would spend the next several years working to get his family out.

When Hall�s tour ended, Roy wasn�t yet eligible for a special visa offered to Iraqis who worked with U.S. forces. He still had three months of combat work left.

So Hall returned to the U.S. and began the paperwork to bring his former interpreter over. Then one day he got an email: Roy had been killed in a bombing along with six American soldiers.
