Scenes From The Aftermath Of The U.S. Withdrawal From Afghanistan

The U.S. military’s mission in Afghanistan is over. For many still living in the country, a new struggle has begun: how to move forward after they were not able to make it before the U.S. withdrawal.

Mark Schmitz is also grappling with how to move forward. His 20-year-old son, Jared, was one of 13 U.S. service members killed in an attack on the Kabul airport. Schmitz spoke to NPR’s Rachel Martin — his interview was produced and edited by the staff of NPR’s Morning Edition, where it originally aired. More from the interview here.
