SPOKANE VALLEY, Washington, DC, Washington, DC, Washington, Idaho. Golden Star Families in Washington and Idaho are working to help those who remain in the memory of their children who died during the service. The man behind the effort is Scott Fraser, a Spokane Valley veteran who is trying to save his Afghan hideouts.
The last days of America in the war in Afghanistan took place at Hamid Karzai International Airport, where United States forces were trying to get out of the country. When the Americans fled, the abbey gate was attacked.
It was at the gates of the abbey in August last year that 11 marines, soldiers, sailors and 179 Afghan civilians were killed in an attack.
US Central Command Earlier this month, it published its investigation into the ISIS-K blast.
However, the Ministry of Defense reports that ISIS-K was not the only group to carry out terrorist efforts after the US seceded from Afghanistan. Marines also said they saw the Taliban beating and turning away potential evacuees. The accusations even accuse the Taliban of shooting at potential evacuees.
Many of these evacuees were supposed to be Afghan special forces and their families who were helping our country.
The latest report from the Department of Defense is not new to Fraser. He knows that the Taliban is hindering Afghans who are allowed to come to America.
“They gave up their house and all their property because we ordered them to come to Kabul to evacuate, and then hell began,” Fraser said.
Since last summer, Fraser has been in contact with Afghan special forces, which he said are being hunted by the Taliban. He believes they are designed to work with Americans. He spent 15 months in Afghanistan, personally training more than 100 Afghan special forces in critical response training and fighting alongside them.
“I was very happy to have a few soldiers who believed in their word more than in their lives,” Fraser said.
An indescribable connection he cannot forget after leaving a war-torn country 15 years ago.
“While one of us is still breathing, we are still a family,” Fraser said.
Fraser says he is now conducting a maintenance operation from the inner northwest, raising money to save them.
“With that $ 100, we can cover a safe home and food for a family of five for two to three weeks,” Fraser said.
Fraser believes that it is not a matter of “when”, but of “when” he will see his people again. He is already making plans for one of them, whom 4 News Now will call a “medic”.
“So he asked me, ‘Can you find me a hospital where I can volunteer?’ I want to bring back my new community. I want the Spokane community to know that we are very grateful to them for accepting us, ”Fraser said.
Until that day. Fraser says he keeps in touch with the “medic” and other Afghan special forces, trying to keep their spirits up by reminding them of the time together.
4 News Now Nia Wong talks to a “doctor” in an encrypted application.
“We can’t show who this medic is. We can’t tell you much about him because of the Taliban. But since last year I have been talking to him in an encrypted application, ”Wong said. “I can tell you tonight, he is alive, sometimes losing hope, but holding on to the dream of bringing his family to Spokane for a better life”
