After 2 years, he was employed in Army, during this period, a new part was started in his life and he decided to fly by helicopter.

Shahid Fallahi called him as “West Star” (West in here refers to Kurdistan Province). In one of the operations, he attacked to Iraqi forces in the region of Sar pol Zahab and defeated them.

When this news was received by Majlis, Mr. Rafsanjani called him Malek Ashtar.
