Families Of Slain Sailors Claim White House Is Now Rushing Out Condolence Letters

Donald Trump sent last-minute condolence packages to at least three families of late sailors who died aboard the USS John S. McCain in August.

Gold Star relatives to Timothy Eckels Jr., John Hoagland and Corey Ingram received the packages this week, while one father confirmed his was dated from the White House on October 18, according to The Atlantic.

Timothy Eckels Sr. said he didn’t hear from the President until Friday.

‘Honestly, I feel the letter is reactionary to the media storm brewing over how these things have been handled,’ Eckels told The Atlantic.

‘I’ve received letters from McCain, Mattis, and countless other officials before his.

‘I wasn’t sure if the fact that the accident that caused Timothy’s death has still yet to officially have the cause determined played into the timing of our president’s response,’ he added.

Family members to the late Hoagland and Ingram revealed they also suddenly received the packages in the mail.
