There is a scene from the movie “O Brother Where Art Thou” where a candidate for public office repeatedly declares “Is you or is you ain’t my constituency?!” Right now you have an opportunity to stand up and save a life.
One of the principal tenants of our US military is “We never leave men behind”.
As regular listeners to American Warrior Radio are aware, we have taken up the battle to save the life of “Dave”, a brave Afghan interpreter who responded to the call of liberty and faced combat shoulder to shoulder with our troops based upon the promise that our nation would take care of him and his family.
You can hear/read more about his story and the larger issue here, here and here:
Despite complying with all the requisites for a Special Immigrant Visa under the Afghan Allies Act of 2009, “Dave” and his family have been stuck in bureaucratic limbo for NEARLY THREE YEARS! In the interim, as the situation in the country continues to destabilize, those who assisted US troops are being systematically hunted down and slaughtered by our jihadist adversaries. Most recently, these enemies issued a “kill order” for Dave and his family through social media networks.
There are thousands of Afghan interpreters facing similar circumstances and the issue is huge. Often, when a task appears overwhelming, people are frozen into inaction because they don’t know where to start. We start by picking one issue. In this case, one brave ally among the thousands we promised to help.
While many elected officials have agreed to take up Dave’s cause, the political reality is that most Congressional offices strongly prefer that a request for action come from one of their own constituents. If someone you know lives in one of the following Congressional Districts and is willing to take up this cause, please contact us immediately! email@example.com
