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

Rating: 5 stars  

I first became involved with No One Left Behind the summer of 2017. I was introduced to James Miervaldis and Janis Shinwari as a fellow for the Georgetown Day School Policy Institute and have continued working with the organization because of the moral obligation I feel toward helping their mission. I have accompanied James to Speaker Paul Ryan's office to lobby on behalf of SIVs and Janis has addressed my high school to share his story, as pictured above. Spreading awareness about this issue is what No One Left Behind does best and it is an honor to have been included in their efforts as a student.

Many translators have saved American lives in the process and put their lives at greater risk in an effort to help America. The U.S. has a moral obligation to assist these wartime allies and show the world that America does not give empty promises. It is our duty, as Americans, to take care of these translators and treat them like the war heroes they are. No One Left Behind's mission and values represent the warrior ethos mentality and their drive to help the people that helped America deserves the highest recognition and support.
