Chad Robichaux joins the podcast this week as we examine the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021 and consider how an independent rescue mission led to the successful evacuation of 17,000 people from the Taliban’s terrorist regime. Chad led this daring operation, and is the author of the book Saving Aziz: How the Mission to Help One Became a Calling to Rescue Thousands from the Taliban. We also discuss the resilience of Afghanistan and its people, his direct interaction with the Taliban, and what we can learn from this twenty-year war.


Chad Robichaux is a former Force Recon Marine and DOD Contractor with eight deployments to Afghanistan and is the co-founder of Save Our Allies, which evacuated more than 17,000 people from Afghanistan in 2021. After overcoming his personal battles with PTSD and nearly becoming a veteran suicide statistic, Chad founded the Mighty Oaks Foundation, a leading non-profit serving the active duty, military veteran and first responder communities with highly successful faith-based combat trauma and resiliency programs. Chad has become a go-to resource and a subject matter expert on faith-based solutions to PTSD, having advised the former presidential administration, Congress, the VA, the DOD, and was appointed to serve as the Chairman of a White House Veterans Coalition.
