President Trump spoke at a ceremony to congratulate Gen. Mark Milley on becoming the new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and then gave a huge bear hug to a wounded veteran:

Retired Army Capt. Luis Avila, who was severely wounded by a bomb in 2011 in Afghanistan, was warmly embraced by the president after the hero sang “God Bless America”

This should be no surprise to anyone who has been following President Trump and knows his love for our military.

There hasn’t been a president in recent history who has done more for our military and our defense.
