The Heavily Decorated Army Major Escorting Trump At Billy Graham’s Funeral Is Graham’s War Hero Grandson
Donald Trump arrived at Billy Graham’s funeral in North Carolina Friday, where he was escorted by a very special member of the Graham family.
As POTUS walked to the tent where Graham’s family and dignitaries were gathered, he was met halfway by a uniformed Army Major. The two saluted each other and the Major escorted the first and second families to their seats.
What many watching may not know is the identity of that man. He is Billy Graham’s grandson, Edward. Edward graduated from West Point and served seven tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, where he was once injured by shrapnel from an IED.
Graham escorted the family and left Trump at his chair with a salute.
Graham was also in Washington, DC, for his grandfather’s service at the United States Capitol. Graham stood for hours, shaking the hands of all of those who were there to pay honor to Billy Graham. Edward’s father, Franklin Graham, told The Daily Caller, “These people stood outside for us and for my father.” He continued, “I will stand here for them. We love them and so does God.”
