US Veterans Assist Allies Stuck in Afghanistan

By October 3, 2022October 10th, 2022No Comments

United States veterans stepped in to assist and rescue allies who were still stuck in Afghanistan in order to show their appreciation for all of the help they received during the almost 20-year war in Afghanistan. United States President Joe Biden estimated that American troops have assisted in the evacuation of around 120,000 people from Afghanistan. In addition, nonprofit organizations claim that they are assisting thousands of others with getting out through privately chartered flights.

The Independence Fund based in North Carolina is an organization that supports wounded veterans and their families as well as provides them with special immigrant visas in its veteran programming worked hard with other teams to rescue more than 17,000 allies still stuck in Afghanistan. Another well-known volunteer group that is made up of veterans, service members, and law enforcement who work together in order to bring home American citizens, legal permanent residents, their family members, and Afghan allies and partners is known as Task Force Argo. The Task Force Argo volunteers work hard to ensure that special immigrant visas and qualifying Afghans are not lost in the shuttle or forgotten about when being helped out of Afghanistan. Overall, organizations are committed to ensuring that the allies stuck in Afghanistan are able to reach safety and go back to the United States.
