The last US soldier to leave Afghanistan

Major General Chris Donahue is the last US soldier to leave Afghanistan. The longest war in the United States is said to be over. It is a symbolic moment when the man steps into the C-17 cargo plane at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan – and leaves the country in chaos.

A handout made available by the US Central Command shows Donahue on Monday on board the plane in which the US ambassador to Afghanistan, Ross Wilson (66), was also sitting.
