48 year-old Bakhtiar Gozeh (cq) was one of the many victims of the Saddam Hussein era. He lived in the Kurdish village of Shaqlawa, when a gas attack by Hussein's army attacked their homes, living him temporarily blind. He moved to the United States in 1997, and now teaches Arabic to students at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. He poses for a portrait in front of a rug with the image of a traditional Kurdish marriage. (JAVIER MANZANO / THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) Bakhtiar Gozeh (cq) PORTRAITS
