CHARLOTTE, NC – With Honor Action joins a coalition of other veteran service organizations who are calling on the White House to do more for the Afghan allies who served alongside the U.S. military. With Honor Action, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Wounded Warrior Project, Veterans for American Ideals, and a number of other organizations signed a letter to the White House praising the initial arrival of 2,500 Special Immigrant Visa Afghans to Fort Lee and urged the evacuation of all 20,000 Afghans in the Special Immigrant Visa pipeline.

With Honor Action is a cross-partisan movement focused on supporting military veterans who want to work across the aisle and put principles before politics while serving again in Congress. With Honor Action’s advisory board includes post-9/11 veterans and Gold Star family members — Chris Howard, Ryan Manion, and Medal of Honor Recipient Florent Groberg — as well as prominent American leaders such as Secretary Robert Gates, Senator Tom Daschle, Admiral Michael Mullen, Gen. Nadja West, and David Gergen.
With Honor Action is a 501(c)(4), which serves as the organization’s policy and social-welfare arm. With Honor has an affiliated federally registered “super PAC” called With Honor Fund.
