Its now 6:00 PM looking the scene of sunset and reminding the days of happy moments of life. I didn’t know that the charming days of my life will soon pass. Offices were full of employees, markets were full of people, rush and crowds everywhere in Kabul. People around me looks weird and i feel like they all hopeless and anxious. No body knows what brings tomorrow but the word optimism diminished and left with darkness. I assisted the US Government mission from last 5 years for the hope that i will raise my family in a country where people give priority to peace. Its been almost a year that i applied for Special Immigrant Visa and still my case is in review with US Embassy. The US evacuated people whose didn’t work for on behalf of the US Government and we all left behind. These difficult days of our lives shall too pass.

These men and women of No One Left Behind are so inspiring in their devotion to honoring their personal - and our government’s- pledge to help those who helped us. Their hard work to get interpreters and others who supported the US effort in Afghanistan to safety is incredible. You can raise money to support them on Facebook as a personal cause. I highly recommend it.

The first few days after the fall of Kabul, I was sad beyond belief. I have family members who served in the military in Afghanistan. I have a friend who lost his son (Army) in Afghanistan. Our military are so thankful for the Afghan civilians who helped in so many ways in the fight for freedom - risking their lives to do so. They should never have been left behind. All I could think was "how can I help them?". Then a miracle happened. I saw John James (former U. S. Senate candidate and military veteran) on TV. He spoke of No One Left Behind. I sent a check that same day. It gives me so much hope and faith in our country to know that a veteran founded charity like this is there. Ready and able to do the impossible - and honor the military creed of never leaving a brother in arms. You have my continuing support and many prayers of thanks. God Bless you!! A truly fine charity.

I am thrilled to find these charity.

I am greatly saddened by the events in Afghanistan although I do not blame any particular party other than the Taliban.

This is a no win situation but I believe No One Left Behind can help those who do make it out.

My son's interpreter not only bravely fulfilled his commitment to work as an interpreter he also put himself in harm's way multiple times protecting my son and the other soldiers he served with. He arrived in the US under SIV and has become a US citizen. His wife was instructed by the US embassy to come to Kabul and make her way to the airport. She is still an Afghan citizen but has the correct paperwork. She has been trapped in the chaos for 5 days now and is becoming very discouraged. I asked my son, "are _ and his wife worth all of this?" his reply to me was "absolutely" followed by stories and tears. Thank you for keeping up the fight - it is worth it, for the sake of those we made promises to, for the sake of those who protected our sons and daughters, for the sake of the veterans who are now pulled into the middle of this on a minute by minute basis. The cause is worthy!

I know an Afghan family here in New Your State who are trying everything they can to get a brother with his wife and two daughters and their sister out. They are all at the gate with proper paperwork and have been there for many days. No One Left Behind has helped insure that they are on the list to be called to the gate.
The oldest brother talked to Fox News about the situation.

During this time when caring American Citizens are in anguish over the situation in Kabul, and especially the danger that our Afghan allies who helped us are in, and feeling extremely helpless to do anything about it, I'm grateful to have found this organization that allows me to at least help some of our Afghan allies who do make it out to be able to have the help they need to start a life here in America. Our government made a promise to these people, and as a citizen, I'm embarrassed and horrified by how our government has handled the U.S. troop withdrawal in Afghanistan which has put wonderful human beings who offered their hospitality and help to our soldiers in danger of being hunted and murdered. We owe our Afghan allies so much, and I'm grateful that I can do something for them.

I am a retired Coast Guard officer who spent 21 years on combined active and reserve service. I watched helplessly as our country abandoned our Vietnamese allies. I learned about NOLB from its internet solicitations and became a donor using both my IRA account and the monthly donation program. Just watching the news and learning that allies such as Germany, France and the UK have gone out and freed their interpreters and their families while our forces are not allowed to leave their compound makes the efforts of NOLB all the more valuable.

I encourage everyone to donate as much as they can to this worthy cause.

I have been heartsick over the Iraqi and Afghani allies we have abandoned. Thank God I found this organization after hearing Matt Zeller speak. There is something I can do to help save the lives of the Afghanis who put their own lives, and those of their families, at risk to help our soldiers. They trusted us to be honorable. I also fear that the number of suicides by our veterans -- an appalling high number -- will greatly increase if we abandon these people. But, this organization is fighting the good fight and refuses to abandon our allies. How honorable it is to save these innocents from torture and death.

For many years I’ve followed this nonprofit as it worked to bring Afghan interpreters out of harm’s way. It’s a cause close to my heart as an OEF veteran who owes her life to the work of Afghan interpreters. I’m sure this nonprofit never imagined the things happening the way they are today. This group is exhausted, working around the clock, and in need of our support now more than ever. They are experienced and passionate about their mission to leave no one behind who helped us. They are the real deal and have been dedicated to and vocal about this mission for years. Let’s get behind them.

No One Left Behind has worked for many years and different administrations with one mission: to keep America's promise to those who helped American servicemen and women in Afghanistan and Iraq as interpreters in a foreign land. Over time, this has grown to include assistance for those who are able to reach America, such as vehicles, home goods, and health needs. They were the first to warn of the need to provide visas for the interpreters and their families and I pray they can continue to have success.

These guys have put in HELLA work over the last few days with the Afghanistan airlift situation. I’ve been following the entire thing since it started at the airport and all the guys involved in this charity have been insanely active in the real world and on social media trying to get SIVs and their families safely out. This is one of those charities you can donate to and sleep soundly at night knowing your dollars are making a real difference.

As Kabul fell, like so many others, I watched events unfold with all the reporting, analysis, and interviews. One of the interviews was with former Captain Matt Zeller, a co-founder of 'No None Left Behind.' I listened to him tell his story of how in 2008, his life was saved by his interpreter Janis Shinwari. In 2014, Captain Zeller was able to help get Shinwari to the States. $35,000 was raised to help Shinwari start over. Instead of using that money for himself he used it to help start this organization with Captain Zeller. Upon investigation, on my part, I found that from the Advisory Board, to the Board of Directors, to the Afghans who are heavily involved, that this is an efficient not for profit with one singular purpose in getting those people and their families who helped us out. I wish I was able to do more than just right checks. For me this is very personal. Our involvement starts with the events of September 11, 2001. I was near the World Trade Center when the attacks happened. As an ironworker by my former vocation, I was on site that night. So much is burnt into my memory. Today, I fully understand that as wounded as we were (and still are) by this act of terrorism and mass murder, that the Afghan people suffered greatly as well. If there can be any saving grace from 20 years of well intentions laden with so missteps and political screwups, it's to save the lives of the people that put everything on the line to help us. I am fully confident that like the Vietnamese refugees before them, that they will make good citizens, compatriots, Americans. This is our Dunkirk moment as a nation/ Let's get this right.
