John Kelly, Homeland Secretary, honored his son, 2nd Lt. Robert Kelly, on Friday during an interview on Fox and Friends, calling him “the finest man I ever knew”.
“Wonderful guy. Wonderful husband. Wonderful son. Wonderful brother. Brave beyond all get out,” he continued. “His men still correspond with us. They still mourn him as we do.”
Robert Kelly, 29, was killed in a roadside bomb blast in 2010 during a foot patrol in Afghanistan’s Helmand province. John Kelly became secretary of the Department of Homeland Security in January.
John Kelly also recently stated that if we knew what he knows about terrorism, we’d never leave our house.
He further stated, “I was telling Steve on the way in here if he knew what I knew about terrorism, he’d never leave the house in the morning. But the good news is again we have the finest men and woman in uniform, out of uniform, police officers, local law enforcement New York City cops protecting us.”
