these groups. >> we knew who they were and where they were and they trusted us. we were able to present highly vetted individuals in the context in a sea of chaos, of tens of thousands. these folks manning the perimeter, that's what they wanted to do anyway. >> it started with handful of us who were friends with an afghan commando and special forces sergeant. we came together to help him get out of the country. we candidate ourselves now do we leverage what we can do. we newt country well, we operated there for a long time. we built relationships or leveraged preexisting relationships with people we knew inside the perimeter. oftentimes the heavy effort is done by the local people who
live in those areas. it was a mad house at the airfield. tom used the word pineapple to gain entry with the guards. we were frantically yelling into the phone telling him to say pineapple. and he did. and passport pineapple was born. >> i got on the phone with a couple of green berets. it was overwhelming. we took the chat room that we were operating in and we renamed it task force pineapple. we sat up basic operating rules, you are shepherds. your job is to be the eyes and ears of the afghan family you are guiding. we had a former green beret who would type in the room my family
is at abby gate and it's closed. and one would say the north gate is open. they would hold the picture of the pineapple. we were able to pull hundreds of afghan families through the perimeter in the be final days. people think the opposite of fear is courage. it's not. it's love. the love that afghan people have for freedom of, and the love our veterans have for their afghan partners. i was grateful for our afghan population show us what leadership looked like. dan: please put your hands together and give a welcome for retired green beret and in the

delays grieving period after being injured. you think your life is over. you think you won't have the same quality in life. i had to deal with that. sitting in the hospital room with nothing but my thoughts. you start rationalizing and prioritizing your life. when you make goals and tart meeting them, it takes away the negativity of the healing process. >> a year later he was ready to deploy again. >> when i came back from walter reed i signed back into work on january 12 or 13. the difficulty starts with your mental outlook to prove to yourself that you can do it, where you install confidence and trust in your teammates that you are an asset, not a liability.

[applause] >> john, why did you go back. >> first it was to prove to myself that i was able to. then it was to return back to the life that i absolutely love. and the brothers and sisters left and right, the teammates, and just the overall cause. to gain control of the life that you had, i think that was the
best thing that could get me through that. >> worth it? >> yes. >> next, judge jeanine pirro and tucker carlson. light 'em up, up♪ [♪♪♪] m on fire ♪ ♪ so light 'em up, up, up light 'em... ♪ when i was diagnosed with dupuytren's contracture, i waited to get treated. thought surgery was my only option. but then i found out about nonsurgical treatments. it was a total game changer. learn more about the condition at factsonhand.com

[♪♪♪] judge jeanine: what a great night to be with friends tonight. this year marks 20 years since the september 11 terror attack. a day none of us will ever forget. but from the devastation,
amazing stories of courage emerged. among those were the passengers of flight 93. they were a group of strangers who not only came together to fight back against the hijackers, but they kept the fourth plane from hitting our nation's capitol. and one of those strangers, one of those strangers was todd beamer. and he is this year's courage award recipient. >> todd and his fellow passengers on flight 93 understood, we are not going
back to new jersey. we are guide missile number four. they used a food cart, necessity grabbed they could, the noise, commotion, the sounds of the counterattack beginning. and then it went dead. >> united 93, do you have a commission on that. he's down. he did not lands. he's down. >> where northeast of camp david. >> passengers on this flight may have taken down their plane to site offers on the ground. now being hailed as heroes. >> they rushed their murderers to save lives on the ground. some of our greatest moments have been acts of courage. >> todd was a hero in our
familiar live for so many reasons before 9/11 because of the young plane was. he was a provider for his family and worked hard. a major bless can was that telephone call that todd had with a wonderful lady named lisa jefferson. he was able to describe the nature of the enemy, talk about their plan, send his love to his family, noting that we'll probably not make it out of this. pray together with his a jefferson, and todd's last words, are you guys ready? let's roll. >> it was shock. it was this really can't be. my comfort and my assures in todd's faith. >> he was a christian. i think that's what gives us peace.
>> it was great news for the country what todd did. and i hope that's what they will remember. remember what kind of a man he was. what kind of a leader. >> we have our marching orders. my fellow americans, let's roll. judge jeanine: here to accept the courage award on todd's behalf are his parents, david and maggie beamer.

tucker carlson. [♪♪♪] [cheers and applause] tucker: thank you, pete. thank you. thank you for having me. i don't go anywhere anymore. i am on my ipad back out a script with two fingers. to be in a room with so many people who are so decent. it doesn't happen to me every day. i found that really inspiring and i appreciated -- i love you, too. >> the people on this team were heroes. i thought that person is a lot more impressive than i am. and sow is that person, and so
is that person. it was 100% of the people. i thought to myself these people have taken great risks than i have, but they are recognizably american in the way they are impressive. they are not like a person who arrived from outer space to outshine the rest of us. they were raised in america delivering american attributes. they are humble. they are not that interested in talking about themselves. they are confident. people outside the big cities actually have skills. i'm serious. i am not being mean. but they can actually do stuff. they can make things. they can potentially fix it fit breaks. they don't necessarily have to order another one from china
over amazon. they have usable skills that might sometime come in handy. there is no other place like that. there is in other place where countrymen root for each other so passionately as they do here. americans love to see other americans succeed. your success is my success. you are impressive and i am thrilled by that. not envious. the fact that you are success -- succeeding said something great about this community we call the united states. that's not universal. it's uniquely ours. so i have to say, having seen this my whole life. sometimes i hear people describe a country i don't recognize at all. like i was living in some angry, filthy, crumbling city, that would be my view of american, but even in the filthy,
crumbling cities there are good people. we don't need to burn it down and build back better. no we don't, actually. it's already great. this country is the best expression of human decency in the history of the world. if you don't believe that's true, tell me what is. i will give you my cell. call me when you have figure it out. and you can't. it's not even a political question. it's a much more basic one than that. i divide the world into two groups. yes, this is awesome. but is it fundamentally great because the people are fundamentally great? yes, of course it is. i live here, i know that. clearly they are mad at their dads, pretend not see that. that is honestly -- this gives
me heart and hope. as i sit there back out my apocalyptic script every accepting. then i say to myself, actually this isn't most people. in fact this isn't 85, 95% of people. this is a super tiny subset of people who went to wesleyan. that's it. so i just really want to thank you for coming, for celebrating the best our country has, even as we remember there are a lot of people like this wandering around our country. a lot of them. i hope that gives as much hope as it does me. >> we'll be right back with more patriot awards. who knows your business. knows... your... business!
