This is a subject that is very personal to me. I can relate to Taya Kyle when she said:
“I can tell you that when I hear the applause and when I hear the words being spoken about Ryan [Owens], I’m not thinking about politics in the slightest. What I’m thinking is my heart is pounding and I have chills because it’s truth.”
I feel I speak for most family members of Servicemen and woman when I say thank you, President Trump. Thank you, for your beautiful tribute to Ryan Owens. We felt your words. After 8 years of feeling nothing but disdain and indifference from our president regarding the members of our military (active and retired) and their families…….you are a breath of fresh air, a bright shining light at the end of a once darkened and hopeless tunnel.
And thank you, Taya Kyle, for setting the record straight and telling it like it is. You not only spoke for Carryn Owens but for all of us.
