President Trump has come under scrutiny for the way he handled a phone call to a fallen Soldier’s mother. But as history will always reveal, not every President has managed to make those phone calls. Obama is one who missed many.
U.S. Army Ranger Benjamin Kopp had suffered a gunshot wound to the leg while on deployment overseas in 2009. He went in with just an injured lag but days later he dies from his wounds.
When the grieving mother was asked if she ever received a call form Obama she said, “I never got a call, The Obamas never sent these, either.”
That’s when she pulled out a letter from first lady Melania Trump!
Dear Ms. Stephenson,
I wish to offer my heartfelt gratitude for the sacrifices you have made and the high price you and your family have paid to help ensure our freedom.
As a mother, you bear the burden of war in a very personal way. I want to take a moment, on Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day, to honor you and your son, Corporal Benjamin Kopp, who laid down his life to protect us, our country, and all we hold dear. His sacrifice will never be forgotten.
I hold you close to my heart and keep you in my prayers.
God bless you Melanie ands thanks for showing this family the respect the Obama’s did not.
