#5 Rofsky helped him navigate the cultural adjustment to America. "He knew what he would want, put things into place and accomplished it," she said.

During high school, Zilberman met Katrina Yurchak, a Torah Academy student who became his wife. He was accepted into Ohio State University but had other ideas.

...Zilberman wanted to pay his own way to college and knew that the military would help him do that. He also liked following in the footsteps of a grandfather who was a military pilot during World War II for the Soviet Union.

While in the Navy, Zilberman earned a bachelor's degree in computer science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., in three years. Zilberman had planned to go on to study medicine and hoped to become an emergency-room doctor. Sokolov said she learned that he spent his spare time reading organic-chemistry books.

He was about to take a new assignment in Pensacola, Fla., as a flight instructor.

Very sad. Especially when one considers our retarded immigration policy that works _against_ people like this man and his family, instead importing millions of illiterate dropouts and criminals who resent rather than revere this country.
