Pres. Trump on Awarding Medal to Capt. Rose: ‘This Will Enshrine Him into the History of Our Nation’

‘For many years the story of Michael’s heroism has gone untold, but today we gather to tell the world of his valor and proudly present him with our nation’s highest military honor’

TRUMP: “For many years the story of Mike's heroism has gone untold, but today we gather to tell the world of his valor and proudly present him with our nation’s highest military honor. Joining Mike today is his wife Margaret, their three children, Sarah, Claire and Michael, and their two grandchildren, Kaitlyn and Christian. Kaitlyn and Christian, I want you to know that the medal that we will present today will forever enshrine your grandfather — and he is a good man; we just spoke to him for a long time, and you are great, great young people — but this will enshrine him into the history of our nation. We’re also grateful to be joined by nine previous Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. Their courage, character and conviction is beyond measure. Please stand.”
