One soldier got the opportunity to tell the president that he enlisted in the service because he was inspired to do so by Donald Trump.

“And I am here because of you,” Sanders said the president reportedly told soldier.

After Trump and first lady Melania left following the surprise Christmas trip to Iraq to visit with U.S. service-members, Sanders shared the story and how she met up with the young man.

“He gave me the patch from his arm,” Sanders added. “Incredible.”

The soldier is now a member of the 3rd Cavalry Regiment of the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Hood, Texas.
