Sargis Sangari - Candidate for the 9th Congressional District of Illinois
by Vote for Sangari Committee. Monday, January 01, 2018.

Sargis Sangari, Retired Lieutenant Colonel of United States Army is an Assyrian Christian, born in Iran in 1969, in 1980, after the Islamic Revolution in Iran, and when he was just a boy his family immigrated to the United States and settled in Chicago. He is naturalized American citizen who lives in Skokie Illinois with his wife Helen, they have four children: son, Ashur (14), daughter, Nineveh (12), daughter, Atalia (9), and son, Sargon (5). At Gordon Technical High School where he graduated in 1988 he lettered in Football and then attended De Paul University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science while receiving an Army Reserve Officer Training Corp scholarship and earning a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army and becoming an American soldier.

LTC Sangari is now a 20 plus-year veteran of the U.S. Army infantry and Special Operational Forces and retired in 2014 at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. His career as a soldier included multiple combat deployments to Iraq, plus other deployments to the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Central America, and a diplomatic assignment in Kuwait.

He is presently the CEO of the Near East Center for Strategic Engagement. NEC-SE is an operationalized research and policy studies institute and think tank he created on September 11, 2014, in memory of the nearly 3,000 Americans who were murdered in the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. The NECSE provides political-military analyses and assessments of world affairs for a diverse international cliental spanning both government and private interests.

Since 2014 NEC-SE has advised and provided operational support for Assyrian Christian military forces fighting against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Relatedly, LTC Sangari has met with and worked with the National Security Council, the State Department's Near East Affairs Iraqi and Syria desk and the Religious Freedom Office, the Department of Defense, Pentagon's Office of Secretary of Defense, U.S. Army Central Command personnel and units and cells, the office of the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, and various key Congressmen, Senators and key Congressional staff members- all for the purpose of resolving issues and topics affecting the Assyrian Christian community to include the Yazidis and other oppressed communities of the Middle East. In 2015 He also founded the United Assyrian Appeal, which is recognized by the IRS as a not-for-profit 501(C)(3) charitable organization, that provided aid to Christian families of soldiers who were battling ISIS and fighting to keep the root of Christianity alive in Iraq and Syria.

His twenty years of army service and work with oppressed minorities in the Middle East was time spent solving complex multi tiered system problems affecting people in life or death situations. It was all about initiative, quick assessments, teamwork, building teams based on their strengths and building bridges from and with diverse people, groups and teams to remedy seemingly impossible issues and problems.

LTC Sangari has decided to take these lessons learned into the political arena to serve the 9th congressional constituents in continued service to his country in Washington DC.
