In his first Memorial Day remarks as commander-in-chief, President Donald Trump paid tribute to fallen U.S. service members and their families.
During his speech at Arlington National Cemetery, Trump saluted Brittany Jacobs and her 7-year-old son, Christian, who was dressed like a Marine. Jacobs father, Marine Sgt. Christopher Jacobs, died during a training accident in California in 2011.
Last year at Arlington Cemetery, I met a young boy named Christian Jacobs. He was special, Trump said. He was standing fully in a uniform.

This Marines’s son at 7 years old is already a far better man than any of the vermin that killed his father could ever hope to be.
He’d probably enlist tomorrow if he could. Talk about a baby cruise. LOL
God bless you young man. You will make a great Marine and American patriot.
Breaks my heart.
I remember that story and watching that young man (not boy). He is everything a proud father could ask for. I’m not the least bit ashamed to admit that I cried watching young Christian; who wouldn’t? God bless him and his family and may his Dad rest in peace.
