NY Brewery Reserves Table With 13 Beers for Fallen Soldiers Killed in Afghanistan
'[Thirteen] glasses will sit untouched at this reserved table
A New York Brewery announced they would leave 13 beers on a reserved table for the 13 U.S. service members killed in Afghanistan during Thursday’s terrorist attack.
First Line Brewing announced they would reserve a table inside their brewery set with 13 cold beers to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers.
The brewery wrote:
“[Thirteen] glasses will sit untouched at this reserved table all night for the 13 American troops who were killed in Afghanistan on August 26th."
“These brave, courageous individuals paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.”
They said the beers would continue to be replaced “throughout the night to ensure that they are fresh and ice cold just how they would want them."
"Thank you to our amazing staff for this amazing idea to honor these heroes.”
The brewery said they would be donating on behalf of the 13 service members.
“As we know more about the situation, we will decide the most appropriate donor-recipient(s),” the post noted.
“God bless their families and loved ones. God bless the United States of America,” the post concluded.
The recent suicide bombing outside Kabul airport killed at least 175 people, including 13 U.S. military personnel, and many more wounded on Thursday.
The Biden administration caved to the Taliban's demands by keeping the original August 31 deadline to withdraw the troops.
But there are still hundreds of Americans left inside the country along with U.S. Afghan allies.
The Pentagon said that almost 10,000 people are waiting at Hamid Karzai International Airport Airport in Kabul to be flown out.
The father of a U.S. Marin in the Kabul airport attack slammed Biden for the disaster in Afghanistan, arguing that he "turned his back" on American troops.
Young U.S. Marine Kareem Nikoui of California was among 13 U.S. service members who died in the suicide bombing this week, leaving an estimated 200 people dead.
