Il proprietario di Honor Carvings Darryl Petker sta facendo qualcosa per la possibilità che i ricordi svaniscano. È apparso su “Volpe & Fine settimana degli amici” per discutere del suo progetto di passione e premura.
“volevo il [thirteen] families to know, and their communities, that they’re not forgotten, and there are those of us who appreciate their sacrifice,” Petker said Saturday morning about those lost.
“I wanted these people to know how much their families are appreciated,” added Petker, who himself served in the military.
Petker, a longtime woodcarver, is working to get his unique creations in memory of the thirteen Americans lost to the still-grieving families, so that they know others still care about them, especially ahead of the families’ first Christmas holidays without their loved ones.
Petker creates badges and plaques for American heroes around the country — not just military, but also law enforcement and others who put service and dedication to their fellow Americans at the forefront.
Petker said in an earlier internet posting about his work, “I have been a woodcarver for over 45 anni. About three years ago, I started producing End of Watch (EOW) Memorial Plaques to honor first responders who have given their lives … Over 140 Memorial Plaques have been provided to various localities throughout many U.S. states and federal agencies. Many letters and/or emails of thanks have been received from spouses, bambini, genitori, as well as from agencies and departments of those fallen individuals and K9s.”
Eleven Marines, one Navy corpsman, and one Army soldier were killed in the attack in Kabul on August 26 come USA. forces worked to secure the mass evacuation of thousands of Americans and Afghan allies from Kabul, Fox News reported at the time.
Earlier — in July — American troops and Western allies departed the Bagram Air Base — leaving the Kabul airport as the only potential departure point for all those still in Afghanistan.
Former President Donald Trump later slammed the Biden administration’s “surrender” of Afghanistan — and accused the administration of intentionally trying to move on from the withdrawal and its ongoing aftermath.
