Jeremy Mahugh is a Navy SEAL veteran from the Flathead Valley of Montana. Nic McKinley grew up in Billings and became an Air Force pararescueman before joining the CIA. Now, they're leading efforts to rescue women, girls, and children from Afghanistan.
U.S. officials say a drone strike has blown up a vehicle carrying “multiple suicide bombers” from Afghanistan’s Islamic State affiliate before they could attack the ongoing military evacuation at Kabul’s international airport.
Since Montana has some of the highest numbers of veterans per capita in the country, it is no surprise that a lot of you are reaching out and asking me what you can do to help our friends in Afghanistan.
"This has been such a complete disaster en masse, and we've left so many Americans in the lurch. It is not the fault of the Department of Defense, it is not the fault of the State Department. It's the fault of the administration."
I got a message from someone I greatly respect who has been a huge supporter of our troops here in Montana. He wanted to hear my thoughts on the news developing in Afghanistan. If you're an Afghan veteran, we want to hear yours as well.
