Chase Millsap, Iraq War Veteran

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Chase Millsap is a former Marine officer who served chase-headshot222three combat tours with the 1st Marine Division in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. He then served as a U.S. Army Green Beret for five years in Southwest Asia. Chase has recently been fighting a battle here in the U.S. on behalf of a fellow soldier who served with him in Iraq–an Iraqi soldier who saved Chase’s life during a sniper attack.

The Iraqi soldier escaped to Turkey with his family fearing ISIS militants in Iraq. They are now seeking asylum in the U.S. However because the soldier is Iraqi, he falls under President Trump’s travel ban for people seeking to come to the U.S from seven mostly Muslim nations including Iraq. While the ban was recently amended to allow Iraqi interpreters who assisted U.S. forces to enter the U.S. under the Special Immigrant Visa program, Iraqi soldiers like the one who saved Chase’s life, don’t know what their future holds.
