The Department of Defense released photographs of American troops aiding in the evacuation of Afghanistan as thousands of civilians flee Taliban control and violence at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul.

The remarkable series of pictures shows Marines, soldiers, and airmen helping children, comforting infants, and escorting refugees through the process of leaving Afghanistan.
