Romanian Linguist - CAT II

Alexandra Lammers

"My work with Valiant began in February in Romania, but I have been a linguist for over five years. As a U.S. Army veteran, I would describe my job to others as being very challenging, even difficult at times, but also fun and rewarding. I’ve been a translator, transcriber, interpreter, guide, cultural adviser, researcher, etc., all in one—there is never a dull moment! Knowing that I can help the U.S. military and other U.S. personnel with my skills keeps me motivated. I stay positive, always do what is right, and always give 100%. What we do really does make a difference, and I’m proud to empower the world’s most critical missions through this important work."

Russian Linguist - CAT III

Kirill P. "AK" Maslakov

After serving in the Arkansas Army National Guard for six years and working under the U.S. DoD’s Special Operations Joint Task Force contract, I joined Valiant in February 2019 as a Russian Linguist. My adult life has revolved around public service, both in the military and law enforcement, so choosing to continue my #ServiceAfterService to the nation as a defense contractor/linguist with Valiant was not a hard choice. Throughout my journey with Valiant, I’ve had the privilege to provide unparalleled linguistic services to our military clients, including interpretation and translation of vital communications and advancing counterintelligence efforts. Meeting people of diverse backgrounds, working on conflict threat reduction, extensive international travel, and facilitating cross-cultural ground communication, all while serving and promoting the nation’s interests abroad, make this job so worthwhile.”
