During Tuesday’s game against the Colorado Rockies, the Texas Rangers set aside 13 seats and draped them in American flags in memory of the 13 service members who fell in Afghanistan this month during Joe Biden’s disastrous evacuation of the country.

On August 26, America lost the 11 members of the Marines, one sailor, and an Army staff sergeant, when an ISIS terrorist set off a suicide bomb outside the airport in Kabul as the U.S. military tried to stem the chaos during Joe Biden’s evacuation of Afghanistan’s capital city.

The fallen service members were engaged in screening entrants into the airport as planes loaded to take out civilians ahead of the full takeover of the city by forces led by the Taliban terrorist army.
