Michelle Black thinks back on the time she had with her husband and about the time she will miss.
“He was incredible. You know, even just this year, I was thinking 12 years has flown by and I don’t’ even think 50 will be enough,” she said.
There is a lot that is still unknown about the Oct. 4 attack that took the life of Black’s husband, 35-year-old Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, and three other U.S. Special Forces soldiers.
Michelle Black said she wants those answers, but that is not her focus at the moment. Instead, she is concerned for her 9-year-old and 11-year-old sons.
Michelle Black also wants people to know more about her husband, beyond his work as a soldier. She said he was a master chess player, loved sports and spoke three languages, including the local dialect in Niger.
Michelle Black said President Donald Trump called the family to offer condolences.
“I’m very grateful that he called and he spoke to the kids and I think just the excitement from that made it a little better, even if it was just for a minute,” she said.
