Damn shame. Good job to those responsible for recovering the remains. At least the family won't have to deal with that.

Absolutely. Sad, but so much better than not knowing.

I hate watching the Left spin this loss into a hopelessly political and tacky tragedy. This happened over 2 weeks ago. The Left has not said shit until all this "Trump disrespected the family" narrative started. Now that it gives them some boogers to flick at President Trump, they are all about it.

Is POTUS tacky and silly sometimes in these situations? Yes he is. But the libtards are showing their true colors by showing up to the dance 2 weeks late.

RIO Warriors.

If you haven't seen the surprise visit by Gen Kelly at Sarah Sanders' briefing today addressing the criticism POTUS has received, give it a watch.

Excellent recommendation.

04:45 to 05:01 is outstanding

Whole thing is worth every second.

Just watched his entire briefing. Unbelievable. I've known the process from KIA to family notice, but Gen. Kelly's narrative is professional and moving. His telling of how the Casualty Officers wait outside the homes until the first light is turned on. Wow. I have seen Taking Chance but did not know it was Kelly's command. He said that Chance Phelps was killed "right next to me".

President Trump, please do not spoil Gen. Kelly's words by sending out some childish tweet. Please let it go.

Again, RIP Warriors.
