These guys make me PROUD to be an American.
It is said that war reveals the worst in humanity, but I think it also reveals our best. None of the guys who signed up to go and rescue Americans and our allies had to do it.
They’re not even in the service anymore—they’re retired.
Still, they decided to pick up the torch because they felt like they must. Something that the current administration has absolutely no clue about.
Folks are coming out of retirement to do this while the current guy in The White House needs to leave and go into retirement.
It’s these men who should be in office—not Joe Biden and the other traitor whom many suspect is actually his handler.
Here’s more on the operation:

ABC News had more on the daring rescue mission:
The Pineapple Express’ mission was underway Thursday when the attack occurred in Kabul. A suicide bomber believed to have been an ISIS fighter killed at least 13 U.S. service members — 10 U.S. Marines, a Navy corpsman, an Army soldier and another service member — and wounded 15 other service members, according to U.S. officials.
There were wounded among the Pineapple Express travelers from the blast, and members of the group said they were assessing whether unaccounted-for Afghans they were helping had been killed.
As of Thursday morning, the group said it had brought as many as 500 Afghan special operators, assets and enablers and their families into the airport in Kabul overnight, handing them each over to the protective custody of the U.S. military.

More details were revealed in The New York Post :
The group dodged heavily militarized Taliban checkpoints to smuggle people through to the airport, using images of pineapples on their phones to show those being brought in that they were on their side.
The tropical fruit was also used as a final password — since changed — that was given to US military members at the airport who were working unofficially in tandem with the heroic veterans, ABC said.
They defied deadly chaos that one member compared to scenes worthy of a Jason Bourne flick happening every 10 minutes.
“I just want to get my people out,” Maj. Jim Gant, a retired Green Beret who ABC said has been dubbed “Lawrence of Afghanistan,” told the network of the daring operation.
