“The thread went viral and I was immediately connected with scores of other veterans trying to do the same,” said Mr Jason, who retired as a colonel in 2019.
“We have (since) been organising as a taskforce using our military training – a CNN reporter called it Digital Dunkirk and we grabbed on to that spirit.”
When asked how those with no military experience can help the #DigitalDunkirk cause, Mr Jason said: “Speak loudly and clearly, tell everyone, unequivocally, that it is our moral obligation to get our friends and allies out and to welcome them in our communities with open arms.
“This isn’t over with the last flight. Their new lives begin when they arrive, we can all play a role.”
