In a moving tribute to the 13 fallen U.S. military members killed by radical Islamic terrorists in Kabul last week, Fox News star Joey Jones read the names and biographies of those slain.
The emotional moment overwhelmed Fox News contributor Leo Terrell, a civil rights lawyer. While Jones was discussing the brave Americans killed, Terrell broke down into tears.

“Leo, you look at those faces and you hear their stories,” Jones said to Terrell on Fox News’ ’ “The Big Saturday Show.”
“They want to be a sheriff’s deputy, they want to follow in their parents’ footsteps,” Jones said. “But what I saw? I saw America. I saw people of every race, creed, gender, probably religion. They love each other and they love this country.”
“Maybe we’re not as bad [of a country] as sometimes they say we are,” Jones said.
Terrell was seen wiping tears from his eyes.
“You saw the best and brightest,” Terrell responded. “I won’t talk too long because I can’t…”
Terrell, overwhelmed with emotion, couldn’t continue. He wept on-air for those who gave everything for their country.
“That’s real, folks. That’s real,” Jones said, noting that he’d shed his own tears for the fallen just a day before.
