Trump Was Right: Fallen SEAL Mother Describes Obama’s Meeting with Grieving Parents on the Tarmac
President Trump told reporters on Mondayy that his predecessors, including Barack Obama, fell short in consoling families of fallen soldiers.
Trump repeated his claim on Tuesday that Barack Obama did not call families of fallen soldiers. The president told Brian Kilmeade on FOX News radio that Barack Obama did not even call General John Kelly after his son died in Afghanistan.
Trump was right.
And now this.
Fallen Navy SEAL mother Karen Vaughn described to The Gateway Pundit tonight her thoughts on Barack Obama’s treatment of SEAL Team Six families at the Dover, Delaware tarmac.
On August 6, 2011, 30 US service members were killed when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter they were being transported in crashed in Wardak province, Afghanistan. It was the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan. 17 members of the elite Navy SEALs were killed in the crash.
Karen and Billy Vaughn lost their SEAL son, Aaron, in 2011 in Afghanistan along with 16 other Navy SEALs.

Karen Vaughn, mother of fallen Navy Seal of Aaron Carson Vaughn, reacted to Barack Obama’s campaign ad “One Chance” in 2012. Karen and Billy Vaughn lost their son Aaron, a Navy SEAL, in Afghanistan in 2011.
In 2012, Karen and Billy Vaughn, parents of Aaron Carson Vaughn, spoke at the Defending the Defenders forum sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots outside the RNC Convention in Tampa. Karen brought a copy of the form letter they were sent following their son’s death.
It’s a form letter.
It was signed by an electric pen.
That’s not all.
Karen Vaughn reached out to the parents of the other SEALs killed in that crash.
Their letters were all the same.
Form letters – signed by an electric pen.
On Tuesday Karen Vaughn described to The Gateway Pundit her meeting with Barack Obama on the Dover tarmac after her son was killed.
Karen Vaughn: He met us in Dover. But he ignored the other families whose son’s bodies were on the same plane as the men of Ext 17. Then took a photo op the next day by posting a pic in all media outlets of himself with the caskets… Even though families asked that there be no media surrounding the ceremony.
