Tigran was from the Arabkir district of Yerevan, was the oldest of the two sons in the family and was known for his patriotism. His brother, Vahram, remembers that Tigran insisted that he should serve in Artsakh, on the front lines, and nowhere else. His family knows very little about the circumstances of his death; Tigran was one of dozens of soldiers who gave their lives for Artsakh in the early days of April in battles near Jabrail (Jrakan). Tigran was truly proud to serve in the Armenian Army, and he refused to change into civilian clothing when he would return home from Artsakh on vacation.
Berakchyan’s family was given $1,000.
