Meghan King Edmonds recently applauded her new boyfriend, Christian Schauf, on Instagram.

As the former "Real Housewives of Orange County" cast member and estranged wife of baseball great Jim Edmonds spent time with the entrepreneur and "Life Unchartered" podcast host in Utah over the Memorial Day holiday, she was seen reacting to a heartfelt post he shared with his fans and followers in regard to a past visit he and his band, Catchpenny, had with troops in Iraq several years ago.

“Memorial Day always takes me back to our times in Iraq. And I’ll never forget Memorial Day 2009 in Basra, Iraq with the Minnesota National Guard,” Christian wrote in the caption of his May 25 post, via Us Weekly. “Just a few days prior, several members of the unit lost their to a mortar attack and the tone around the Memorial Day event was extremely somber. Immediately following a service to honor to lost members, we were supposed to put on a show.”

In his post, Christian told his online audience members that he and his bandmates “brainstormed on how to find some light among all of the sadness and came up with a plan.”

“We walked out onstage, Mark [Charles Kelly] started playing the opening riff to ‘Whole Lotta ’ by Led Zepplin [sic], and [my brother] Zach [Schauf] and I talked the highest ranking official in to stage diving in to his troops,” he shared on his page. “The moment he jumped, faces changed."

"Smiles emerged, and we kept playing that song until everybody in the crowd had a chance to stage dive in to their unit," Meghan's new man continued. "I’ll never forget the emotion, the sing alongs, the high fives, and the conversations we had following that show. Memorial Day always feels like the kick off to summer, but is a day to remember and honor. Make sure you take at least a moment today and reflect on what today is all about."
