This is what she said about the experience:
“Our USO trip to San Antonio was incredibly exciting. As a parent of a young child, I have such a profound respect for our nation’s military families. They often sacrifice time away from those they love, and do so while maintaining our security. These families deserve acknowledgement and praise for their efforts, and I’m honored to have expressed mine with help from the USO and hope to have helped boost their morale in the process.”
Her words are the most touching!
