A Sioux Falls man looking to help Afghan allies escape from the Taliban

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(WNAX)- A Sioux Falls man is trying to find ways to help friends in Afghanistan escape the grasp of the Taliban.

Attorney and radio news man Todd Epp was in Afghanistan in 2015 and 16, working to privatize the Afghan national coal company, and met many Afghanis in the process.

Now, many of them are trying to escape and Epp wants to help.

Epp says he has been pushing all the buttons he can.

Epp says the best way to help is not to forget them.

Epp says the states Congressional delegation along with the staff of Iowa Senator Joni Ernst have been very responsive so far.
