Speechless…Mike Pence Humbly Cleans Vietnam Memorial in Honor of Veterans

Mike Pence is quite possibly the most humble, compassionate person in the White House, next to President Trump and Melania.

Pence is a wholesome, Christian, military-loving man and I applaud him for that. He humbly scrubbed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on Saturday to honor our veterans.

USA Today reports:

Pence, the son of a Korean War veteran and father of a Marine, would later lay a wreath and deliver a tribute to veterans at Arlington National Cemetery.

But he began the morning dressed for cleaning duty, arriving on the National Mall in blue jeans, old cowboy boots and yellow gloves soon after the sun rose over the Capitol dome in the distance.

Pence addressed the group of roughly 40 volunteers, “Good morning all. Great of you all to be here. Happy Veterans Day.”

The usual cleaners generally spray the memorial with water before scrubbing, and then spray it off again after. However, due to the temperatures on Saturday, which fell below freezing, they needed to take a more delicate approach, using sponges and paper towels.

Wylie Gilbert, 30, of Maryland, gave Pence some cleaning tips – scrub hard, up and down, left and right.

While the vice president kept his work gloves on, Karen Pence tried scrubbing barehanded, which quickly led to red fingers.

“How are you doing dear?” her husband asked at one point.

Gilbert said afterwards that Karen Pence told him she didn’t mind the hands-on work as it gave her time to reflect.

“Where are you from, ma’am?” Gilbert asked as they worked alongside each other.

“We’re from Indiana,” Karen Pence responded.

Gilbert told the Pences he serves in the Army National Guard in addition to working at NewDay USA.

“Thank you for your service,” the vice president said.

“Thank you for yours — and for coming out here this morning,” Gilbert responded.
