For several U.S. service members, it was a special day Wednesday, when they were lucky enough to meet President Donald Trump outside Air Force One at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Yuma, in Arizona.
The President also signed several of their covers, or caps.
U.S. Marine Sgt. Lauren Butler was there, and the experience is one she’ll never forget. She posted to her Instagram that meeting Trump was the “highlight of her Marine Corps career.”
Meeting @realdonaldtrump today was the highlight of my Marine Corps career. Thank you, President Trump, for coming to Marine Corps Air Station Yuma today to shake some hands and sign some covers! It was a day I'll never forget. 🇺🇸🦅❤️💙 #makeamericagreatagain #maga #trump #teamtrump #thedonald #usa #america #freedom #usmc #marinecorps #femalemarine #sgtofmarines #airforceone #donaldjtrump #djt #potus #nofilterneeded
“Meeting President Trump was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had,” Butler told American Military News. “I’ve always been a Trump supporter, so I was extremely excited. But regardless of your political views, shaking hands with the President is extremely humbling and something you’ll never forget.”
Butler shot footage of the experience:
