General Akmal Ameer continues to serve with honor as he guides NRF special forces in the fight against Taliban in the Hindu Kush Mountains. As a former ANDSF and a graduate of Sandhurst Military Academy, he remains faithful and loyal to the country, and would never abandon his people.
When asked why he didn't flee the country when the opportunity came after the fall of Kabul, he replied, "If we had left, what would we say to our fellow officers? What would we say to their orphans? What would we say to their widows? We understand their pain. I could never leave my country or the soldiers that served under my command. I would never be able to hold my head up high again. So, instead, I'll stay and fight until my last breath. We can't do anything to bring back the martyrs of yesterday, but we stay to fight in their honor and to defend Afghanistan like they did".
