From 2001-2014, over the course of 14 years, more than 40, 000 Canadian soldiers participated in the longest war in Canadian history. Now in 2021 many of these Canadian Afghan war vets are fighting a different fight: Their fighting to get these same interpreters who helped them in Afghanistan to safety in Canada. This is the story of these interpreters, the crucial role they played in helping the Canadian Armed Forces, and their ultimate journey to try and seek shelter in Canada...In this second episode I talk to an interpreter named "James" who made it to Canada under tragic circumstances. I also talk to an Afghan interpreter named "Junior" who was seriously injured while interpreting in Afghanistan and is now stuck in the U.S. with hopes of one day getting to Canada. ---Support the show on PatreonSupport the show on Buy me a Coffee ---If you would like to donate directly to the interpreters, please check out: Veterans Transition NetworkAfghan-Canadian Interpreters  ---FACEBOOK: @truetothestorypodTWITTER: @Truetothe_StoryEMAIL: tyhooper8@gmail.com---Credits: Theme Music: We are Giants, Silver MapleVO Music: David Celeste, Organix TexturesWriting, Producing, Interviewing, and Editing: Tyler Hooper Sound Engineering and Mastering: Manfred Lotz
