HEROES OF KABUL: Sgt. Nicole Gee worked relentlessly to evacuate as many Afghan women and children as possible

LINCOLN, Calif. – This article is part of a Fox News Digital series examining the consequences of the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan one year ago this week.
Sgt. Nicole Gee volunteered to go to the Hamid Karzai International Airport to help with the evacuation of Afghanistan. She worked tirelessly, forgoing sleep and rest to help as many Afghan women and children escape as she could.
“She was excited to be able to use all that training that they do month after month” and “being able to go there and helping evacuate all these people,” Gee's aunt, Cheryl Juels, told Fox News.
And when female U.S. service members were needed to search Afghan women being evacuated, Gee “popped right up, hand up,” Juels said. She “came out there and greeted every single woman and child that she saw with a big smile.”

“She had worked 18 hours that day,” Juels added. “She was volunteering eight hours every night, instead of sleeping, resting or eating. I think for her, she just knew the longer she was out there, the more people were going to get through, and that's why she stayed out there.”
“She was volunteering when she died,” Jules said.
Gee, 23, was one of the 13 U.S service members killed by a suicide bomber who detonated an explosive at the Kabul airport on Aug. 26, 2021. At least 170 Afghan civilians were also killed.

'My sister was my person'Gee's family described the Marine as the “golden child.”
“She was always extremely self-motivated,” Gee's sister Misty Fuoco told Fox News. “Saved all her money ever since she was born.”
“She would go to the grocery store and get groceries for her neighbors,” Fuoco continued.
Gee's cousin Steffani Moody agreed, calling her “an overachiever.”
Juels said Gee “was very driven. She never missed a single day of school.”

Eventually, Gee's husband, Jarod Gee, decided to join the Marines. She spent months weighing out the pros and cons before joining as well.
“She likes a challenge,” Fuoco said. “She was very determined to go.”
Juels said: “With the Marines, I think she found a place that she could be strong and brave and help people and be selfless. And all the things that they stand for was all things that who she was already.”
“And so it just kind of gave her an outlet to be all those things all at once,” Juels continued.

Gee ultimately became a maintenance technician with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. Her job involved fixing radios and working on Humvees – and kept her away from the front lines.
So when Gee told her sister that she was being deployed at her request, Fuoco was nervous.
“She's an electrician,” Fuoco told Fox News. “She is not in a deployable unit.”
Fuoco said she was in denial when she learned about the ISIS-K terrorist attack at the Kabul airport.
But Gee's husband came over the next morning and delivered the news.
“He held me in a big bear hug for at least two minutes,” Fuoco said. “It felt like a lifetime.”
“I just stood completely still and stared at my kitchen cabinets,” Fuoco continued. “I had a thousand thoughts racing through my head, starting wit..

NYC sucker-punch suspect back at Rikers Island after release on no bail for downgraded attempted murder

close Video NYC sucker punch assault caught on video A convicted sex offender was arrested in connection to the brutal, unprovoked assault on a 52-year-old man in New York City.
NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
The New York City suspect let back onto the streets following a caught-on-camera sucker punch knockout attack was returned to Rikers Island on Saturday amid public outcry over his initial release.
Bui Van Phu, a 55-year-old homeless convicted sex offender, had been released without bail on Thursday. He was initially arrested on Wednesday on an attempted murder charge, but that offense was downgraded to third-degree assault and second-degree harassment – misdemeanor offenses that are not bail-eligible crimes under New York state’s 2020 enacted controversial bail reform law.
Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul – a staunch supporter of the bail reform law enacted under her former boss, Andrew Cuomo – said she contacted the Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark and ordered corrections officials to “immediately examine” if Phu violated parole terms following the Aug. 12 unprovoked beat down of 52-year-old Jesus Cortes outside the Fuego Tipico restaurant in the Bronx.
At a subsequent corrections hearing, a state corrections official told a judge that Phu was a member of the notorious Born to Kill street gang founded in the 1980s by first-generation Vietnamese immigrants, N.Y. Daily News reported. He was re-arrested Friday and was returned to the notorious Rikers Island jail complex on Saturday.

“He has a substantial risk of not returning to his parole,” Department of Corrections and Community Service Officer Nixon Ribera said at the hearing regarding Phu, according to Daily News.
Video released by the NYPD allegedly shows Phu put on work gloves on Aug. 12 before approaching Cortes, a Mexican immigrant whom he never met, from behind outside Fuego Tipico and delivering a single blow to the back of his head, laying him out on the concrete. Cortes remains in a coma as of Saturday after suffering a skull fracture, broken cheek and brain bleeding.

Phu was previously convicted of first-degree sex abuse in the Bronx in 1995 and was sentenced to six years to life in prison. He was paroled in 2019 and is now registered as a Level 3 sex offender — the most serious designation — for sexually abusing a 17-year-old girl in 1994, according to state records.

A Washington man suspected in the brutal murders of a couple inside their home on Thursday is on the loose and should be considered armed and dangerous, authorities said.
Shaun D. Rose, 40, is believed to be hiding in the Pierce County and Tacoma area following the murders of Steven and Mina Schulz, both 51, at their home in the 12900 block of Shady Glen Avenue Southeast in Olalla, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday.
The bodies of the Schulzes were discovered around 5:15 p.m. Thursday evening after the couple’s daughter went to check on them, the sheriff’s office said.
The daughter discovered someone had forced their way into the home and saw blood inside. Unable to locate either of her parents, deputies said she backed away from the home and called 911.

New York GOP gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin sat down with Hannity on Friday to discuss his attack at a campaign rally Thursday and his attacker's near-immediate release on cashless bail per current state law.
NY CANDIDATE FOR LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR GIVES FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT OF ZELDIN ATTACK
LEE ZELDIN: You have a person who is saying 'you're done.' He repeated that-he's lunging at me with this weapon, with the two daggers coming out of it, similar to brass knuckles. He is charged with a violent felony and he is instantly released back on the street because of New York's cashless bail laws.
I saw it coming. I wish it wasn't this way. And we keep hearing too many of these stories, as you were just pointing out, some of the decisions with Alvin Bragg in the Jose Alba case.
LEE ZELDIN'S RUNNING MATE ALISON ESPOSITO SLAMS ALLEGED ATTACKER'S RELEASE
There was another story that came out a couple weeks ago where two Mexican cartel drug smugglers got caught with $1.2 million worth of crystal meth, and then they were instantly released back out on the streets.
Now, there's an argument for cash bail that advocates say that you shouldn't be stuck behind bars on a low level offense. You're not a danger. You're not a flight risk. You have a clean record.
GIANNO CALDWELL: SOFT-ON-CRIME POLICIES A ‘CANCER’ IN CHICAGO
You shouldn't be stuck because you can't afford any amount of bail. You have no money. I get that. But I would say that if you have $1.2 million of crystal meth and you don't have any money to pay your bill, your bail, that's on you.
You're a bad businessman, a bad drug dealer and a bad criminal. We're seeing these stories that in some of these cases, like earlier today, I was in Syracuse, New York, there was a 93-year-old Connie Tuori, who was murdered by somebody released on cashless bail.
Oh, there's more than just data. These are stories. These are real lives. Cashless bail has been a failure, and it needs to be repealed in New York.

Tackle the guy, Zeldin continued, quote, The attacker will likely be instantly released under New York's law. Now, anyway, Zeldin was right because shortly after the perpetrator was arrested, he was immediately released from jail. After posting $0 in bail on his own recognizance. Zero, he tried to kill a public official. So let me get this straight.

We're going to vote for law and order.” And Lee Zeldin is the law and order candidate. So I think there is a chance that people will say, “I don't care, Black, White, whatever.
