WHO WE ARE
Save Our Allies, a veteran and military support coalition focused on delivering full and timely benefits to the U.S. Military community in need, and ensuring Afghan personnel and their families who supported U.S. forces are properly protected from violence and persecution by evacuation to safe countries, including the United States.
As the Taliban seized control of Kabul, Afghanistan, a coalition of multinational actors locked arms to rescue thousands of Afghan evacuees working out of two JOCs (Joint Operations Centers) in Washington DC and an undisclosed country in the Middle East as well as on the ground personnel on the HKIA airport in Kabul and a ground team outside the wire to rescue deliberately selected target lists consisting of American Citizens, SIVs (Special Immigrant Visas / Interpreters), orphans, vulnerable women and Christian groups who would be persecuted. These groups were vetted and verified with authentication methods during extraction.
The Save Our Allies team operated this PRO (Precision Recovery Operation) as Task Force 6:8 after the well known bible verse, “Here am I, send me” – Isaiah 6:8. Phase 1, the rescue operation was named Operation Chivalrous Night by our host nation partner. In a period of eight days Task Force 6:8 rescued 8,911 people from Afghanistan and coordinated the rescue of over 3,000 more totally our Phase 1 efforts to 12,000 safely recovered human lives.
Phase 2, Operation New Hope, is our effort to see it through. Save Our Allies is committed to working with US and foreign governments to ensure that each of our evacuees are treated humanely, with dignity and all the proper care to ensure a smooth transition to their now home, so that they might find a new hope and a new beginning.
This is a humanitarian crisis of biblical magnitudes and the efforts done to save innocent Afghans by governments and individuals across the region and globe has been heroic.
Save Our Allies is dedicated to saving our Afghan Allies who served side-by-side with U.S. Armed Forces and working to ensure our Veterans are getting the care needed after bravely serving our nation.
