Afghan and Iraqi Translators Saved American Lives. Make them "Honorary Veterans."
At Its heart, America has always been a magnanimous society where people are judged on their character and work ethic. Unfortunately, all too often that grand vision is hindered by xenophobia and strong feelings of insecurity amongst substantial segments of our population. In the US Army, I personally served with dozens of amazing translators in Iraq and Afghanistan who would make America greater because of their talents and devotion to selfless civic service. No One Left Behind is a great organization dedicated to supporting citizenship for these heroic people who risked their lives for our country. This is not a partisan political issue. It is simply the morally right action to take. Please take the time to support this worthy cause.
