U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Nima H. Najafabadi, a machine gunner with 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, plays with an Afghan child on Fort Pickett, Virginia, Oct. 13, 2021. Najafabadi, originally from Shiraz, Iran, came to the United States when he was 8 years old. Now, he is grateful for the opportunity to help families who are in a similar position that he was in 20 years ago. The Department of Defense, through U.S. Northern Command, and in support of the Department of Homeland Security, is providing transportation, temporary housing, medical screening, and general support for at least 50,000 Afghan evacuees at suitable facilities, in permanent or temporary structures, as quickly as possible. This initiative provides Afghan personnel essential support at secure locations outside Afghanistan. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Corey Mathews)
