Afghan allies- Support those who supported us!

Afghan allies--Help Support those who supported us!
 
We are a group of Special Operations Forces and military veterans and civilians who have served in Afghanistan over the past 20 years at every level and have worked closely with our Afghan partners, many of whom fought beside us.
 
We have all been working tirelessly for the past few weeks getting Afghan translators, humanitarian workers, and other counterparts and their families out of Afghanistan.
 
These translators, who supported our Special Forces warriors and other military and civilian missions on countless missions, risked their lives to support our noble mission. Their bravery in the face of dire consequences, saved American lives.
 
Our efforts to date have successfully rescued 12 translators and their families. This is great news, but the work continues! There are many others our group is working on getting out of Afghanistan including interpreters who directly supported Special Operations, Medical Professionals, and workers who supported an Afghan Orphanage all of whom are in fear for their lives for working with US Forces. Many more still in harm’s way, trying to get out of Afghanistan.
 
Our mission is to assist those Afghans and their families that courageously supported us as they navigate a very complex, slow, and bureaucratic visa and resettlement process.
 
When they arrive in America, they come only with the clothes they were wearing when they left Afghanistan. There are expenses associated with resettling them that we have borne ourselves and we truly need your assistance so that we can finish the work we started on this important and honorable humanitarian mission.
 
This support includes adding funds to their mobile phones so we can stay in contact with them as they navigate the immigration system, medicine for family members, visa processing fees, etc.
 
One such family is JS and his wife and 3 daughters, who supported US Special Forces as a translator during the war. JS has no future in a Taliban-run Afghanistan. We have blocked his and his family's faces in the photos to avoid retribution against him or any of their relatives. JS faced certain death for helping US forces had he been left behind. The other Afghan families that we are working to get out are in a similar situations.
 
Fortunately, our group were able to get JS and his family out of the country. In a harrowing escape that included narrowly missing the recent suicide bombing at Kabul International Airport, they are currently in Germany waiting to be sent to the US.
 
Please help us assist JS and many other families who have selflessly dedicated their lives to the American mission in Afghanistan. Support us in serving them as they served us in the cause of freedom with courage, honor and integrity.
 
Thank you!
