Task Force Pineapple was a volunteer operation of several special operation forces to evacuate more than 1,000 refugees from Afghanistan.
It was formed on Aug. 15, 2021, by Scott Mann, a former Green Beret, to rescue an Afghan commando he had served with and his family. After that, the group grew to more than 50 members and planned its next evacuation, code name "Pineapple Express."

Under cover of darkness, more than 500 people were smuggled through a series of hiding places to get them to Kabul airport undetected by Taliban. To confirm their identity, the fugitives had to show a picture of yellow pineapples on a pink background.

It wasn't until the August 26 attack, in which 196 civilians and 13 American soldiers lost their lives, that the evacuation came to a premature end. Nevertheless, Task Force Pineapple was able to rescue more than 1,000 people who otherwise probably never would have reached the airport.
For the former soldiers, rescuing the Afghans was a particularly important concern, as most NATO countries did virtually nothing to help.

Twenty years after the 9/11 attacks that propelled the #US into its longest war, the last US troops have left Afghanistan. More than 800,000 US #soldiers were deployed there over the past two decades. The Taliban have now retaken control of nearly the whole country. Should the US have pulled out? Could the #Biden administration have handled the withdrawal better? What will happen after US troops are gone? Our correspondents met with US citizens whose lives have been changed forever by the conflict.

Robert “Boots” Chouinard was born in 1923. He enlisted in the Army in 1943, and a year later he was sent to Europe. He touched down on Omaha Beach in France five days after D-Day.

Chouinard and his unit, the 128th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Gun Battalion, would join up with Patton's famed 3rd Army and travel across France and Belgium providing anti-aircraft support for the spearhead of the allied advance.

Ultimately Chouinard was sent to the Rhine River to secure the Ludendorff Bridge at Remagen. While thousands of American soldiers were crossing, they were tasked to shoot down German aircraft that were attempting to destroy the bridge.

After successfully completing this task, they traveled south of the Rhine River, where they made another crossing in Oppenheim, Germany.

Military members and veterans of the Afghanistan war offered harrowing eyewitness testimony of the chaotic and deadly withdrawal from the country’s longest conflict, during an hours-long congressional hearing on Wednesday.
They also pleaded with Congress to help the Afghan allies left behind.
In searing, sometimes graphic detail, several witnesses recounted their experiences as active-duty service members sent to assist with the evacuation of US troops and civilians from Afghanistan as the Taliban swept to power in August 2021.
The hearing was the first in what is expected to be a multi-part investigation by Republicans into the Biden administration’s handling of the evacuation from Afghanistan

Your veterans benefits are your business and you should not share the details about how much your VA disability check is every month with anybody, especially your neighbors.

It is common for people to ask questions about your career or what kind of work you do but it's really nobody’s business.

It's much safer to just say you are retired than to try and explain your disability. Explaining how much you get paid and how everything is service-connected is going to be a foreign language to him so I would just avoid it altogether

Through our dearvaguy@gmail.com email service, we frequently receive letters from widows or divorced couples who are concerned about their VA Pension eligibility and changes as a result of death or divorce. Below are some recent letters that we have received. These are common questions that our office receives on a regular basis. We hope you find the replies helpful.

Veteran’s Pension for Surviving Spouses

Dear VA Guy,

My deceased husband served in the Korean War but was not in combat and, in fact, never actually went to Korea. I was told by the local VA office that because my husband was not injured while in the service, that I am not entitled to any benefits. However, a friend of mine told me that as the surviving spouse of a wartime Veteran, that I may be entitled to a Veteran’s Pension. My friend suggested I contact you. So am I entitled to a Veteran’s Pension even though my husband is deceased?

Benefits Confused

There is the possibility that you would eligible for a pension benefit. The criteria for Veteran’s Pension insists that he must have served during a qualifying wartime period. A service-connected injury is not a requirement for VA Pension qualification, as that requirement only applies to Disability Indemnity Compensation, also known as DIC. The criteria for qualification are listed below:

Your husband must have served during a qualifying wartime period.
Your husband must have received an honorable discharge or better.
You must require assistance with activities of daily living.
You must pass an incoming asset test.
So it is absolutely possible that you may qualify for Veteran’s Pension as the widow of a veteran who was serving during the time of the Korean War. For a surviving spouse like yourself, you could be eligible for a pension amount of approximately $1,300 a month.

Does the VA Pension Change If One Spouse Passes?

Dear VA Guy,

My father and mother were receiving $2,120 per month from the VA. My mother died in November and my father is worried sick that since my mother has passed away, that his VA Pension will stop. Do we have to notify the VA of my mother’s death? Does my father’s pension stop?

Stressed and Confused

We deal with this each and every day and we’ll be happy to help. The short answer is yes. We do have to notify the VA that your mom has passed. But the good news is that the pension belongs to him (since he is a Veteran), so it doesn’t stop. The only change would be that the pension will now transition from the couples pension amount of $2,120 to $1,900 a month for just your father. So he would see a reduction in the benefit amount, but he would continue to receive his pension.

Does the VA Pension Change When A Widowed Veteran Remarries?

Dear VA Guy,

My mother was married to my father for 52 years. He served in World War II and was stationed in Hawaii on December 7, 1941, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Fortunately, he was not injured. My parents were married 52 years but he died 10 years ago. My mother met another man in an assisted living home and they were married for 3 years until his death last year. My mother needs money to stay in assisted living. Is she eligible for a widows pension under my father?

Second Marriage

Unfortunately, she would not be no longer be eligible for the pension. If your mother would have remained a widow, yes. But since she remarried, she’s not eligible for the pension under your father’s name. But if her second husband was a Veteran, you may be able to qualify under his name. The pension amount is the same, you would just need to get a copy of his DD214 to see if he served during a qualified wartime period.

Are VA Pension Benefits Available for Divorced Couples?

Dear VA Guy,

My father was a pilot in Vietnam and he was honorably discharged in 1968. My parents were married for 25 years and while my father served in the Air Force, they got divorced about 15 years ago. My father remarried but his wife died several years ago. My father died last year. My mother never remarried. Is my mother eligible for VA Pension under my father?

Divorced Parents

Unfortunately, she would not be eligible. Divorce eliminates any rights that your mom may have to the VA pension for your dad. As a result, divorced couples of veterans do not qualify for that benefit.

Contact Us for More Information About Your Specific Case

If you have additional questions about Veteran’s Pension eligibility for you and/or your spouse, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can send an email to dearvaguy@gmail.com.
