DULLES, Va., Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Tom Kilgannon, president of the Freedom Alliance, an organization that supports wounded war veterans and military families, made the following statement:
“Today Freedom Alliance expresses our deep gratitude and deep admiration for our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and guardsmen who fought and sacrificed in Afghanistan and Iraq. We continue to mourn the families who have lost loved ones in a noble effort to hold accountable the terrorists who declared war on our nation 20 years ago.
“The events that are currently taking place in Afghanistan are sad and regrettable, to say the least, but the shame of this exit belongs to others.
“You have willingly faced an evil enemy, done your duty, carried out your missions with precision, and maintained the proud history of America’s men and women in uniform. You fearlessly defended our nation and its honor. You have made incredible sacrifices for our country and for the most vulnerable Afghan citizens you have met. You are America’s best ambassador.
“It is a great honor for our team at Freedom Alliance to know so many of our Battle Veterans and Gold Star families and to serve on behalf of our generous supporters. We will continue to do so. You are in our prayers. God bless you, one and all. “
