Default You won't see this on CBS

In 1991, at the end of Desert Storm, a 19-year-old U.S. Army Cavalry
Scout Private who had just spent eight months at war sat out on a
street at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia.

He sat there on his duffel bag along with his Battalion around him for
four days waiting for the buses to come and take him to the King Fahad
Airport so he could go home.

Unfortunately, the politicians of the day never planned for how to
bring so many soldiers home after the war ended, so there was a
shortage of planes. Politicians are great at talking, but terrible at

Finally, the buses came, and took the young man along with his fellow
soldiers to the airport. The planes waiting were from Tower Air. The
owner of Tower Air had volunteered his planes and staff to bring
soldiers home for the cost of fuel only.

Happily, the young veteran got home just in time for Easter weekend in
1991, and spent that time emotionally healing with friends and family surrounding him.

That Private was me, Ron Knouse.

The owner of Tower Air was - Donald J. Trump.

Help me make this go viral. President Trump has done so many good
things you never hear about!

I had read that once before, can't remember where but we never heard it from the Presidents lips. I'm going to post it on Facebook!
