The Department of Defense, through U.S. Northern Command, and in support of the Department of State and Department of Homeland Security is providing transportation, temporary housing, medical screening, and general support for at least 50,000 Afghan evacuees at suitable facilities across the United States, in permanent or temporary structures. This provides Afghan evacuees essential support at secure locates outside Afghanistan.
