(The White House) Citing its bravery when the moment of truth came, President Trump today awarded the Medal of Honor to the MQ-9 Reaper drone that killed Iranian General Quassem Soleimani.
“You were not afraid to look the enemy in the eye from an altitude of 50,000 feet.”
In attendance at the ceremony were the drone’s family, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems.
“You should be very proud of this fine patriotic drone you have raised, which is more than I can say for most drones.”
Asked what it planned to do now, the drone said it was going to take a brief period of R & R to refuel, and then get straight back to the battlefield.
“What a hero!”
