US Army Staff Sgt. Sean Pabey, truck commander, Sgt. James Carlberg dog handler and his dog Staff Sgt. Abby, assigned to 1st Platoon, Apache Company, 3-15th Infantry Brigade, provide overwatch from the mountain tops of Maiden Shar, Afghanistan, Sept. 1, 2013 during operation Apache Shield.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
