The Salute to our Armed Services Ball included one proud yet nervous Army sergeant who danced with the First Lady. They had a simply precious conversation!
“She was just saying ‘hi’ to me, congratulating me on being selected,” Army Staff Sergeant Jose Medina recalled while beaming. “I just told her that she was beautiful and that she had a beautiful family. And she smiled.”
Sergeant Medina, 29, of Puerto Rico, said he was thrilled and honored to get the opportunity to dance with the First Lady. The heroic American who survived tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan confessed to being nervous to dance with Melania Trump, via BizPac Review.
“It was incredible,” Sergeant Medina also said. “Obviously, it was a great privilege and honor to get the chance to dance with the First Lady.”
The soldier also noted Melania Trump herself was a bit nervous too. The elegance and grace the First Lady exhibited on stage gave no indication that being in the spotlight caused her even a moment’s pause, but, being next to her, the sergeant noticed. “She was nervous,” Medina continued. “I don’t think she was ready for all of that attention.”
The sergeant also was quick to note Mrs. Trump was very gracious during their dance at the inaugural ball. The pair never missed a step during their dance, which was also viewed via webcast by members of the military currently serving in the Middle East.
Sergeant Jose Medina asked Melania Trump if he could twirl her, and she happily agreed. “So I did it, and the crowd went crazy,” the proud soldier added.
While Melania Trump and Medina were twirling on the stage, President Donald Trump was dancing with Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Catherine Campbell. The petty officer relayed how proud she was to dance with the new president.
“I was nervous the whole time, trying not to step on the president’s toes,” Campbell said. When asked if the 45th president of the United States is a good dancer, Campbell quickly answered, “Absolutely!”
As for Melania, she gave the audience a few lovely words when Donald Trump introduced her, “I’m honored to be your First Lady. We will fight, we will win, and we will make America great again!” What an exceptional First Lady — already!
