This weekend we had the honor to meet with Green Beret Nate Boyer at Home Base on the Navy Yard in Boston. This bonus episode is a tribute to the men and women who have served over the past 20 years in Afghanistan. “Your sacrifice matters” is the essence of a tweet from a few days ago on Nate’s Twitter feed, like a mantra to our brave men and women who have served during this 2-decade war. Home Base echoes this message to all veterans and families, or if you are on your way to transitioning at home, the team is here for you now and moving forward.
Thank You Nate Boyer for your service and missions that began even before joining the military, and thanks for your advocacy for your fellow veterans and those who continue to need a voice in Afghanistan.
To every human that fought for the people of Afghanistan. And especially to those that didn’t make it back: YOUR SACRIFICE MATTERS. It has to. Because if yours doesn’t than mine doesn’t. We can’t lose hope and believe it was all for nothing. It was for humanity if nothing more. - 8.16.21 Nate Boyer
