I’M AN AMERICAN VETERAN DOING WHAT MY GOVERNMENT WON’T

US military veterans who served in the Afghanistan conflict are choosing to help thousands of Afghan people, including interpreters, translators, military base support staff members and other contractors who had worked directly with the U.S. government and should have been eligible for special visas to enter the United States. Approximately 63,000 Special Via applications are still being processed, while many of them are still stuck in Afghanistan waiting. For the veterans, it’s a stain on the US government’s failure to protect those that helped them. Produced by the New York Times.
