Young ‘Marine’ Mourning Father at Arlington Gets Surprise Visit from the Commander-in-Chief

To honor Memorial Day, the family members of those who have died while in military service filled military cemeteries to decorate the headstones and grieve. In Arlington, President Donald Trump and high-ranking members of the administration participated in a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider and laid wreaths on the hallowed ground.

However, a moment that was easy to miss happened when the president and vice president were making their way to visit the gravesite of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly’s son, Robert Kelly, a Marine who died in Afghanistan in 2011.

On his way to the gravesite, Trump crossed paths with an unsuspecting family. Brittany Jacobs and her son, 4-year-old Christian, had traveled that day to Arlington from North Carolina to mourn the loss of husband and father 1st Marine Division, Sgt. Chris Jacobs.

Chris served in Afghanistan and Iraq, before tragically being killed in a military training exercise in California. Christian was only a few months old when his father died. Brittany has taken her son to visit his father’s grave every Memorial Day since.

This year, Christian wrote a message to his dad:

According to the local news channel in North Carolina, WTKR, it read:

I hope for you to come back soon, daddy. And I love you and hope for you to be here. I know you will be here and I love you. And he is always watching over me and makes sure – he’s proud of me, daddy. And I love you daddy.

This year, Christian wore a replica of the Marine Corps Dress Blues uniform to honor his father.

Then, something no one was expecting, came a visit from President Trump. Trump stopped at Chris Jacobs grave to say hello to Christian on his walk through the Section 60 of Arlington cemetery, known for being the final resting place for many lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.

According to photos and the White House Pool report, Trump spoke with Christian and took a photo with him.

In return, Trump received a hug.

No matter your political beliefs, if your family has given the most they can for this country, a visit and a hug from the commander in chief is a meaningful act, and a small way to say “thank you.”

For families like Christian’s, you can never say thank you enough times.
