Americans are Volunteering to Help the Kurds against ISIS

Impressive [1]:

Following an ISIS chemical weapons attack involving the use of chlorine mortar shells Feb. 11 near Sinjar Mountain in Iraq, a dozen seriously wounded Kurdish soldiers were assessed and bundled off on ambulances to a field hospital that had been set up a few days earlier by American volunteers working shoulder to shoulder with the Peshmerga.

The volunteer unit that works as an adjunct of the Peshmerga’s 9th Brigade calls itself “Qalubna Makum,” which translates from Arabic as “Our Hearts Are with You.”

This newly-formed seven person team of U.S. and European combat veterans has been operating in Iraq’s Kurdish region since December, and is led by a former U.S. Army officer from Los Angeles whose name is being withheld for his safety.
