My name is James Thompson. I am a veteran, and attorney in Wichita, KS. I’m part of a group of current military and veterans working to help save personal friends and their families in Afghanistan. Our group consists of Republicans, Democrats and Independents who are putting aside politics to do what is right.
There are 107 people we are trying to save. We were able to get one family of five out (including the 2 and three year old pictured above) and to a safe place while they await their visas. We still have 102 other people, mostly women and children, that we are trying to rescue as well. These people are personally known to members of our group and helped members of our group and numerous other military personnel while they were deployed. They are heroes being hunted by those who hate America. If found they will be killed.
The money raised will be used for all expenses needed to get the people to the states and give them a fresh start. Those expense will include, travel, toiletries, food, shelter, toys, legal expenses, etc. These people helped our military when they were deployed, including members of our group. We want to help them in any way we can to make a fresh start in the United States.
