Last August, a 28-year-old former US soldier traveled to northern Iraq where he joined the Assyrian Christian militia Dyvekh Nawsha which means “self-sacrifice” in Aramaic. It's a privately funded group numbering in the hundred under the command of the Kurdish peshmerga that is fighting ISIS in northern Iraq and eastern Syria. Martin Himel reports.
