God will write a new testament for the Armenian people
The modern Armenian-liberation movement has established for itself an new breed of heroes, who among other things, have their roots firmly planted in the ancient wisdom and God-fearing nature of our old Armenian heroes. The ancient heroes knew all too well what they were fighting for and never betrayed their people or the rules of heroism. They were dubbed the (gods of fire.) Worthy of Vahakn. They all unselfishly gave their lives for the preservation of freedom and of self-government. In this line of heroes follows the might Tatul, from Taline.
Tatul Georgig Krpeyan was born in the village of Arek in the town of Taline on April 21, 1965. His intermediary schooling was completed at the Taline technical School, where he graduated with honors. After serving in the army for two years he was accepted to the University of Yerevan. In his fourth year at the university, Tatul joined the Armenian-liberation movement. He was also a pert of the (Meiatsoom) organization whose goal was to unite Artsakh with the motherland. The struggle for independence and solidarity enveloped the whole country, especially students who took to the streets in protests and demonstrations, demanding justice and freedom. Tatul had decided to manifest these ideas through actions. His involvement with the military provided him an outlet to actively pursue the right of independence and justice. The Azeri's army was beginning to infest towns in Artsakh; tanks appeared from nowhere and death seemed eminent. In September of 1990, Tatul dropped his courses at the university and joined the front line of battle at (Getashen.)
The first serious battle against the
Azeri's began in February,
1991. Our heroes won, thanks to Tatul relentless efforts in securing guns and power from
the Russian forces. He encouraged his troops to always be prepared for an even greater
attack. In March of the same year, another serious clash between the Armenians and the
Azerii's took place; once again the Turkish forces were catapulted back with great force.
Nevertheless a time came when the Turkish army was began to overpower the Armenian Freedom
Fighters. The town of Getashen was surrounded by Turkish forces and under severe threat of
being taken over. Tatul was overtaken by the spirit of Vahakn again; this time he
commandeered a Russian tank, commanding the driver to take him and his friends to the
front line. This is how we lost one of out great leaders; he was a (legend) in his own
time said his friend of him. Tatul, a teacher, a fighter and a guardian angel sent to
protect his people and to defy the limitations of a rebellious soul.
