The Decorated Army Major Who Escorted President Trump At Billy Graham’s Funeral Is Graham’s War Hero Grandson

On Friday, the most powerful members of the U.S. government gathered in North Carolina to pay respects to the late Billy Graham. The Service was quite simple and moving. Very much in line with the life lived by Billy Graham.

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and First and Second ladies arrived at Billy Graham’s funeral where he was escorted by a uniformed Army Major.

As POTUS walked to the tent where Graham’s family and dignitaries were gathered, he was met halfway by the Army Major who is a very special member of the Graham family. 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.

Graham escorted the family and left Trump at his chair with a salute.

Graham was also in Washington, D.C. for his grandfather’s service at the United States Capitol. Graham stood for hours, shaking the hands of all of those who were there to pay honor to Billy Graham. Edward’s father, Franklin Graham, told The Daily Caller “These people stood outside for us and for my father,” he continued. “I will stand here for them. We love them and so does God.”

This is a rare occasion. Edward is a fine young man. He’s truly a giant in more ways than one, he wears the uniform well and represents the Graham Heritage with honor and distinction. Much respect for this man. He is a credit to the family and country Major.

Thank you, Major Graham, for your service and I’m certain that your Grandfather is quite proud of you!
And we all thank for your Grandfather’s service to our LORD.
