Over the past couple weeks, Americans have watched in horror as the Taliban took control of Afghanistan.
Many of us have stood speechless in front of our televisions as we watch innocent people cling to the sides of US military planes in desperate attempts for escape, parents passing their babies over barbed wire fences in hopes that their child will survive, and brutal and heinous treatment of Afghan women.
For 20 years, the Afghan people have put their lives on the line to defend their country and help the US military. Now with the Taliban in Kabul, those same people are being hunted and killed in the streets for their support of US troops.
As a community dedicated to protecting what matters most, we feel compelled to help the Afghan people who stood by our side for the past two decades.
