(Worthy News) – Setting foot in the US was a joyful but fraught moment for Mujtaba Ebadi, one of 50 US citizens and legal residents evacuated from Afghanistan who arrived at John F. Kennedy Airport Saturday morning.
“I’m excited, but despite excitement, I am worrying for my family, because they are still left behind,” said Ebadi, a financial advisor who worked for the US Army and had to leave a younger brother and his parents in the war-torn and economically ravaged country. “They were in serious danger, because I was supporting the US Army back in home,” he said.
Edadi and the other evacuees, including more than a dozen kids, were rescued from the Taliban-controlled country by Project Dynamo, a volunteer, civilian group led by former military members and current members of the Reserves.
The group claims it has helped more than 2,000 Americans and legal permanent residents escape Afghanistan since the heavily criticized US withdrawal in August. That’s well above the few hundred the Biden administration said were left in the country after the exit. [ Source:NY Post (Read More…) ]
