Mike Pence is arguably the quietest, least boisterous member of the Trump administration. Often times his actions are done with much more subtle and private tone than President Trump. He has been known to show up at veterans and military events with complete secrecy, unannounced.
On many of Pence’s trips and surprise visits, one group of people who are typically the beneficiary members are the armed services. That tradition remained over the Thanksgiving holiday when parents could be found at multiple military locations serving the men and women and families of active-duty military members.
On Thanksgiving eve, Pence spent time with injured soldiers and families at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
As The Daily Caller previously reported:
Pence met privately with wounded members of the Army and their families doctors and caregivers. Some of the wounded service members were wheelchair-bound after amputation surgery according to reports. Pence signed casts and autographs, took pictures and met service dogs.
Wounded service members and their families received an unexpected treat on Wednesday, when they were able to give thanks and receive encouragement from Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence.
Karen & I were honored to bring #Thanksgiving greetings to brave members of our Armed Forces and their families at @WRBethesda earlier today. Every American is thankful for the service and courage of these true American HEROES. pic.twitter.com/d1jv3nMoqN

On Thanksgiving day, Pence could be found serving food to active duty Marines and airmen at Naval Air Station Meridian in Mississippi:
Mike Pence has a son in the Marine Corps currently, so perhaps it’s that personal sacrifice that gives the Vice President and second lady such a heart for military.
