The Afghan-American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) Memorializes the Life and Contributions of Mr. Haron Amin who Passed away on Saturday, February 14, 2015.
The Afghan-American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) wishes to recognize and memorialize the contributions of Mr. Haron Amin, an AACC Board Member and prominent Afghan-American who Passed Away on February 14, 2015 after a fight against cancer.
Mr. Amin was born in 1969 in Kabul, Afghanistan and lived most of his early years there. Soon after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, he and his family fled Afghanistan and eventually settled in the United States.
He returned back to his home country in 1988 to fight for Afghanistan’s liberation for two years under the legendary commander General Ahmad Shah Masoud, who in 1990 assigned Amin to represent the “Afghan and Resistance Interests” before the U.S. Congress and Administration, a task he pursued for more than a decade.
