More Info

Since the fall of Afghanistan we have been on our own, paying to smuggle SIV holders and their families out of Afghanistan and flying them from Pakistan and Dubai. After twenty years in Afghanistan there are very few people who have not worked in some way for the American military; so its been a challenge getting them out considering the American Gov't left their computers behind with lists of everyone who has worked for them. Two weeks ago we brought a family of four to the border with Pakistan, once in the long line, the Taliban made them crawl on their hands and knees into Pakistan. Anyone who stood up was badly beaten. We still have three interpreters who worked very closely with my brother, a Lt. Colonel in the Army, whom we are working to get out of Afghanistan. We already have their families. But we need help. We are running out of resources. During the takeover, GoFundMe wouldn't allow me to start a fundraiser, they said I needed to connect with "Doctors Without Borders" or another group like that, how they thought that would help get our guys and their families out is anybody's guess. So we used our retirement accounts to bring seventeen people out, mostly young women and little girls, but now we are in need of financial help. If you have anything to donate to our cause, we would all be forever in your debt.
