Must Read

The United States will pull out all American soldiers in less than three months, bringing an end to the longest war our country has ever waged. Thousands of Americans died in the nearly 20-year war in Afghanistan, but that number would almost certainly have been greater if it hadn’t been for the help and selflessness of thousands and thousands of Afghan citizens who worked as translators, interpreters, and guides for military members or given additional assistance to the US government.   These Afghan people risked their lives to serve the US, and in exchange, they depended on us for safety. As the US military mission in Afghanistan draws to a close, our moral and strategic responsibility to safeguard Afghans is more vital than ever.
