Review for No One Left Behind Inc, Merrifield, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I began helping SIV's and their families in 2014 with Hameed and then Rahimullah in 2017. No One Left Behind was just getting started. NOLB came along side five church's military outreach ministries that we combined in a group of volunteers named Northern Virginia Military Ministries. The result was the ability to help even more families. NOLB is a great organization that continues to focus on advocacy and practical support--job search, transportation, furniture, mentoring to individuals, etc. Unfortunately, the public support for SIV's is waning of late but another 4,000 visas have been approved for this year 2020 so it still gives us hope. Hameed now has an associate's degree and has applied for citizenship. He and his family are doing well. Rahimullah's children are doing well in school as well. Sincerely, Bill Shugarts & Margene Sims

PS-Bill served with the U.S. Army's 23rd Infantry Division know as the "Americal" in Vietnam (1969-1970) so knows the value of interpreters having worked with them in Vietnam.
