I am John, a veteran combat medic with a background in Civil Affairs, and I am currently overseas doing everything I can to get our people out of Afghanistan. Ask me anything!
Good day, Reddit! I am a veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars answering an undeniable calling to do whatever I can to bring our people home. After I exhausted every tool at my disposal while working from home in the United States i left for Doha, Qatar, in order to spend time face-to-face with officials from the U.S. and Qatar (as well as diplomats from other countries, civilians, and anyone else with even a shred of usable information) in an effort to bring home our allies and their families. I hit dead-end after dead-end with unanswered emails and phone calls, so I decided it would be most effective if I just got into the thick of it. You may have heard that the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan was a (relative) success, but for very good reasons I did not, at all, buy that rhetoric. Ask me absolutely anything.
EDIT: Everyone, thank you so much for asking your questions. It's 1 am here and my eyes are starting to cross, so I am going to log off for now. When I get back on I will look through the comments to see if there are any unanswered questions that need answers or snarky comments that deserve a retort. Good night and stay safe
