Freedom Alliance Expresses Profound Gratitude to Veterans of Afghanistan

Organization Pledges Support for Combat Vets Struggling with Moral Injury

DULLES, Va., Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tom Kilgannon, president of Freedom Alliance, an organization supporting wounded combat veterans and military families, issued the following statement:

“Today, Freedom Alliance extends our profound gratitude and expresses our deepest admiration to our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Guardsmen who fought and sacrificed in Afghanistan, as well as Iraq. We continue to grieve for the families who lost a loved one in the noble effort to hold accountable the terrorists who declared war on our nation 20 years ago.

“The events that are currently taking place in Afghanistan are sad and unfortunate, to put it mildly, but the ignominy of this exit belongs to others.

“You volunteered to face an evil enemy, did your duty, executed your missions with precision, and upheld the proud history of America’s men and women in uniform. You fearlessly defended our nation and her honor. You made incredible sacrifices for our country and for the most vulnerable Afghan citizens you encountered. You are America’s finest ambassadors.

“It is a great honor for our team at Freedom Alliance to know so many of our combat veterans and Gold Star Families and to provide assistance on behalf of our generous supporters. We will continue to do so. You are in our prayers. God Bless you, one and all.”
