NRATV: Veteran U.S. Army Ranger Found Trump Speech "Refreshing"

Former U.S. Army Ranger and NRATV Frontlines correspondent Chuck Holton went on Stinchfield Wednesday to share a veteran’s opinion on President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress. While speaking about the need to increase military spending, Trump took a moment to honor the widow of U.S. Navy SEAL William Owens. Owens was killed in a raid in Yemen, five days into the new administration. Trump called Owens a "hero" whose "legacy is etched into eternity."

"It is so refreshing to be able to listen to a speech by the President of the United States and not get sick to my stomach," Holton said. "For the last eight years, every time Barack Obama came on television it would just give me this sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. And I know from speaking to other veterans, from speaking to active duty military, that they feel the same way."
