Trump Honors Secret Service Agent Who Died In Scotland As Real Life Superhero

President Trump and others are honoring the loss of United States Secret Service Special Agent Nole Edward Remagen who died after suffering a massive stroke while the presidential protection team accompanied the president in Scotland.

Remagen had served in the Marines and in the Secret service for a combined 24 years. He was “among the elite heroes” at the time of his death, according to Trump.

In a statement, President Trump said he is continually praying for Remagen’s wife and children. He said secret service agents endlessly sacrifice time from their families so that they can faithfully serve to keep the president safe, accruing an unpayable debt.

“Earlier this week, United States Secret Service Special Agent Nole Edward Remagen suffered a stroke while on duty in Scotland,” the statement read. “Our hearts are filled with sadness over the loss of a beloved and devoted Special Agent, husband, and father. Our prayers are with Special Agent Remagen’s loved ones, including his wife and two young children. We grieve with them and with his Secret Service colleagues, who have lost a friend and a brother.”

“A five-year veteran of the United States Marines, Special Agent Remagen spent 19 years with the Secret Service,” Trump continued in the statement. “At the time of his passing, he was among the elite heroes who serve in the Presidential Protection Division of the Secret Service. Melania and I are deeply grateful for his lifetime of devotion, and today, we pause to honor his life and 24 years of service to our Nation.”

And, “The incredible men and women of the United States Secret Service travel wherever they are needed around the world, spend long periods of time away from their families, and make tremendous sacrifices for our safety and security. They make up the most elite protective agency in the world, universally admired for their extraordinary skill, devotion, and courage.”

“We are forever in their debt,” the president added.
