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.

( Milo ) Bernie Sanders has been fined by the Federal Election Commission for illegally accepting contributions from the Australian Labor Party.
The FEC discovered in early February the Australian Labor Party paid for students to fly to the United States to volunteer for Bernie's campaign in 2016. Bernie's foreign laborers received $8,000 in stipends from the Australian government, as part of an educational program.
The Sanders campaign received $25,000 of donated contributions from the socialistic foreign party. The FEC fined the Sanders campaign $14,000 in civil penalties in accordance with violating federal election law.
Vice News reported a Sander's spokesman said the Vermont senator accepted the ruling to avoid further legal expenses, but won't admit to violating the election law.
"During the course of the campaign, thousands and thousands of young people from every state and many other countries volunteered. Among them were seven Australian young people who were receiving a modest stipend and airfare from the Australian Labor Party so they could learn about American politics," the spokesperson said.
"The folks on the campaign managing volunteers did not believe the stipend disqualified them from being volunteers."
The Australian Labor Party also denies violating the American election law.
"All parties send observers to overseas elections. It has happened for decades. This is a new and very strict interpretation," an ALP source told the Australian press. "We don't believe any rules were broken."

President Trump and First Lady Melania attended Billy Graham’s funeral today in North Carolina. During the service, the First Lady was seen holding onto her husband’s arm while singing a hymn together.
But don’t expect the liberal media to write about this because as we all know, it doesn’t fit their desperate narrative about the First Couple’s marriage. I bet Melania is so used to reading stupid articles about their marriage that she learned to ignore and laugh at their loony stories.
Here’s a great example. Earlier today, the Daily Mail resident writers with Trump Derangement Syndrome once again accused Melania of dodging Trump’s hand when she was just trying to hold her skirt because of blowing wind => President Trump runs up stairs to Air Force One to avoid brutal D.C. winds without a second look at Melania – before she blatantly dodges his attempt to grab her hand after they land in NC <=

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – The Rev. Billy Graham’s five adult children and some of his favorite singers were preparing to offer memories, hymns and prayers at a funeral Friday that marks the culmination of more than a week of tributes to “America’s Pastor.”
Mourners were already taking their seats hours before the scheduled noon start time of the service in a tent on the grounds of Graham’s library in Charlotte. The invitation-only crowd of about 2,000 is expected to include President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. The service will also be streamed live online.
Neither Pence nor Trump are scheduled to speak during the service, but they are meeting privately with the family beforehand.
The Rev. Franklin Graham will deliver the main funeral address for his father after shorter messages from Billy Graham’s three daughters and younger son.
The funeral planning began a decade ago with Billy Graham himself, and it also reflects his family’s desire to capture the feeling of the crusades that made the world’s best-known Protestant preacher of his era.
“His fingerprints are on this service for sure,” family spokesman Mark DeMoss said in a phone interview. “The Graham family has long considered that his funeral eventually would really be his last crusade.”
Graham, who died last week at age 99, brought a message of salvation to millions during visits and live broadcasts to scores of countries.
The service features songs from gospel musicians who performed at Graham’s events: Linda McCrary-Fisher, Michael W. Smith and the Gaither Vocal Band. They are all friends who sang for Graham at his home in recent years, DeMoss said.
Other notable guests are expected to include North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper. His immediate predecessor, Pat McCrory, was already in the tent hours before the service and doing commentary for a radio station.
