Kaine has repeatedly mentioned his son, Nat, in the few appearances he has made on the campaign trail so far. He also spoke of his son’s service while accepting the Democratic Party’s nomination for vice president Wednesday.
“You know, my son, Nat, deployed with his Marine battalion just two days ago. He deployed overseas to protect and defend the very NATO allies that Donald Trump says he now wants to abandon. Semper fi, Nat. Semper fi,” Kaine said.
The Virginia senator also has recounted taking time off from law school to volunteer as a missionary in Honduras, an experience he says shaped his life.
