August 30, 2021

With heavy hearts and tears we at Yellow Ribbon America join our fellow American’s as we mourn the loss of our 13 brave United States Military Members and the upsetting exit and end to America’s 20 years of Combat Operation’s in Afghanistan after the September 11, 2001 Terrorists Attacks on our Country.

SSG Ryan Knauss, a Soldier with the 8th Psychological Operation’s Group (Airborne), U.S. Army was one of those who was killed. SSG Ryan Knauss was also Awarded for Valor and a Purple Heart Recipient.

In 2019 “Operation Christmas For Our Troops & Their Families our annual Christmas Drive with Our Nation’s Heroes Foundation had the honor to help support the 8th Psychological Operation’s Group’s (Airborne) Unit Christmas Tree Lighting Event with their families.

Yellow Ribbon America has made a donation for SSG Ryan Knauss’s Family and we are posting for other American’s to donate too. We are American’s and we take care of our own! Especially our Heroes families who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for us all.

Freedom Is Not Free… May God comfort and bless all the 13 brave United States Military Members families and protect & help our fellow American’s and Allies who were left behind.

“Our hearts are heavy with grief for the loss of our 13 American service members. SSG Ryan Knauss was one of our own. He was a member of the PSYOP Regiment. As our PSYOP community has come together in support of one another and in support of Ryan’s wife, we’re reminded of what makes PSYOP an amazing community to be a part of. The PSYOP Veterans Association (POVA) has pledged to provide all donations made to their website with the intended recipient listed as “Fund for SSG Ryan Knauss” to Ryan’s wife.

POVA is accepting donations to this fund until Friday, 3 September 2021.
