When President Donald Trump honors fallen American soldiers, he does it with sincerity unlike former President Barack Obama.
Trump decided to visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
However, it was Trump’s decision to visit the sections dedicated to Afghanistan and Iraq War soldiers that really hit home for some.
Families of soldiers who perished in the Middle East were so happy to see Trump honoring fallen American soldiers that they couldn’t help but shed a tear.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Trump’s visit to Section 60, the section dedicated to those who died after Sept. 11, 2001, was unexpected, but the families who were there to visit the graves of their loved ones were happy to see him go out of his way to pay his respects.
As commander in chief, Trump understands what it means to send soldiers into combat, and his visit to Arlington undoubtedly served as a reminder of the choice he may have to make some day — whether to send thousands of men to their deaths to defend the United States.
Alison Malachowski, a grieving mother, said she could barely contain her excitement when Trump showed up.

“It means a lot to me, it really does, that you take that,” Malachowksi told Trump. “My son loved this country very, very much … Jimmy knew he wasn’t coming home, and he said, ‘Mama, I hope that people don’t forget that I ever lived.’ And if you could remember just Jimmy, that would mean so much to me.”
What a beautiful moment. Trump truly knows how to honor fallen American soldiers. Share this story on social media and leave a comment below.
