Remember we have an all volunteer military, these brave souls they took on this challenge.
“These have been America’s most interesting, our nationwide treasure. They rose to the event, met the second, represented the perfect, the easiest our nation has to supply. And fairly frankly, they deserve so a lot better than this and higher than to have of Joe Biden look down and examine his watch through the dignified switch of stays over the week.”

Hannity asked Schmitz, “Your son was despatched again to Afghanistan to help with the evacuation efforts. You stated ‘It’s one thing he (Jared) at all times needed to do. I by no means have seen a younger man practice as arduous as he did to be the perfect soldier he may very well be.’ He went again only for this mission. Explain.”
Schmitz replied, “Yes, he did. First I simply needed to say that the Jared has exemplified, simply a lot that any man might ever attempt for and made me so proud to observe him undertake this… endeavor and going into the Marine Corps. He accomplished his bootcamp, went to Jordan, was enthusiastic about that, and he was continually trying to do extra and was given that chance.”
Hannity responded, “First I need to say to each of you, if I’ll, as a father or mother… I… no one can perceive the loss that each of you might have gone by way of. I am unable to think about the ache that each of you might be residing by way of, and I’m very sorry about that.”
He then asked Schmitz, “Mark, you met with Biden over the weekend. How did that go?” Schmitz answered, “Well, initially I wasn’t going to fulfill with him. But then I felt I owed it to my son to at the very least have some phrases with him (Biden) about how I felt and… it did not go effectively. He talked a bit extra about his personal son than he did my son and I…that did not sit effectively with me.”
Hannity replied, “Your son was a hero. I am unable to think about the ache, I actually cannot,” before asking Hoover, “Darrin, you stated about your son, he had the largest coronary heart on the planet and no father or mother, and I as a father or mother, I feel each father or mother watching proper now understands this, no father or mother ought to should bury their sons or daughter. It’s not speculated to work that manner. He was scheduled to return house on September the fifteenth and retire and marry his fiancé Nicole, I am unable to think about how you feel at present.”
Hoover said while holding back tears, “…it is absolutely the worst feeling on the planet… having them be away for therefore lengthy and doing the job that all of them love. There’s little question about it. Being a Marine, to those guys is every little thing. And having this occur…to those heroes, each one of them is a hero, there isn’t any doubt, each final one of them… they died with their brothers and their sisters proper subsequent to them doing precisely what all of them needed to do. And that’s defending this nation.”
Hannity called the fallen soldiers, “America’s nationwide treasure.” He then asked Hoover about his decision not to meet with Biden and added referencing the now infamous video clip of Biden checking his watch after each casket was unloaded from the plane, “I’d wish to know after I noticed Biden take a look at his watch, I used to be actually was like, you gotta be kidding me as a result of all of this to me was preventable as a result of we noticed them (The Taliban) on the march… we had April, May, June, July to extradite everyone and our tools. We did not do it. There’s no excuse to me for this. Why did you select to not meet with the President?”
A very emotional Hoover replied, “For precisely the explanations you simply gave. We stated, ‘completely not.’ We did not need to, we did not need to cope with him. We did not need to, we did not need him wherever close to us. We, as a household determined that was the best way it was gonna be.”
Hoover added, “In reference to the checking of his watch, that did not occur simply as soon as that occurred on each single one (casket) that got here out of that airplane. It occurred on each single one of them. They would launch the salute and he appeared down at his watch on each final one, all 13, he appeared down at his watch. As a father, you understand, seeing that and the disrespect and listening to from his (Darrin’s) former leaders, one of his Master Sergeants stated precisely what you simply stated, that ‘this was avoidable,’ that they left them over there. They had them over there and allow them to down. And that, that we will not have that. We… it may well’t occur ever once more.”
Hannity added, “We additionally deserted Americans. Americans now are on their very own. We left them behind.” He then asked Schmitz, “Mark. You need to remark on the watch incident? Did you discover the identical thing?”
Schmitz, “Yes, I did. I truly leaned into my son’s mom’s ear and I stated, ‘I swear to God if he checks his watch yet one more time.’ And that was solely most likely 4 instances in… I could not…I could not take a look at him anymore after that. Just contemplating, particularly on the time and why we have been there, it was… I discovered to be the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen.”
Hannity concluded the segment by saying, “I do know there are not any phrases that any commentator or host might specific that is going to take your ache away. But I can let you know, this viewers shares in your anger and shares in a deep appreciation and thankfulness and unhappiness at an pointless loss of life… and we’ll be praying for all of you, your households, these unimaginable younger males that you just raised that made this nation, the best nation on earth. They make the nation nice. There’s some leaders that do not make the nation nice. They did. Our ideas and prayers are with you each.”
