Veterans and Military Families: How to Welcome Our Afghan Allies


Tuesday, October 26, 2021 | 2 PM ET

While on a mission to save a nation, our military community formed bonds with the Afghan people. Our Afghan allies are colleagues, friends, and even family. Therefore, the sacrifices they made alongside service members and their families gave rise to today's current duty: aid their well-being. As we continue to process the end of the war in Afghanistan, many feel compelled to take action to support our Afghan allies as they resettle here in the United States.
