Republican congressman urges prayers for active duty and veterans

As reports of mental health struggles pop up all over the country these struggles have also taken their toll on active-duty servicemen and veterans. Especially the Biden administrations sudden and problematic withdraw from Afghanistan.

During an appearance on Mobile, AL radio FM talk 106.5 “Midday Mobile” Rep. Jerry Carl (R-AL) called on people to be aware that the pullout could have an emotional impact on military personnel that served in Afghanistan and urged listeners to be aware of any potential challenges those individuals could be facing.

“But everyone, please be praying for active duty folks that are on duty now,” he said. “You know, you see, there’s 4,000-7,000 being sent into Afghanistan to Kabul to secure that airport. There are thousands upon thousands of support people that will be on ships and planes, and so, let’s pray for active duty, and let’s not lose sight of the mission that they’re on. So, let’s hold them up.”

“But one of the main concerns I have this morning is I was on a conference call, and they started talking about over the last the spike in suicide rates of our Afghanistan veterans,” Carl continued. “Let’s stop for just a second. All of us know one or more. We know an Afghanistan or Iraq warrior that has come home and tried to fit back into society after going through all of that.”

He has also encouraged people to not only reach out to those coming back, but to reach out to him about those that might be stuck in Afghanistan as the situation deteriorates and the Biden administration sends more troops and more troops to stabilize the airport and mount rescue operations. As they try and rescue many trapped from the sudden withdraw.
