Congresswoman Sara Jacobs (D-CA-53), a member of the House Armed Services Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement:
“I am devastated by the loss of US servicemembers and innocent Afghan civilians in Kabul. My heart is with them and their loved ones. Representing a proud military community in San Diego, I know that the service and sacrifice of our servicemembers includes their entire family. Representing a proud refugee community in San Diego, I know there are hundreds of stories we will never know because of this attack. The loss of lives today -- those who were trying to escape and those working to protect them -- is a heartbreaking tragedy.
