Sara welcomes U.S. Army Lt. Col. Scott Mann (Ret.) to discuss the painful impact that the U.S. abandonment of Afghanistan is having on our American heroes who fought, bled, and lost their friends there. Mann was an organizer of the Pineapple Express, through which veterans helped to rescue more than 700 Afghan allies and their families.

Sara and Col. Mann discuss the challenge of transitioning from military service to civilian life, a change that drove Mann to the brink of suicide, and how telling your story is helpful to veterans and the civilians who have no idea what our service members went through. They also reflect on how four different American presidents didn't give the war in Afghanistan the attention and policies it needed.
