WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night and paused for a moment to honor recently fallen member of the armed forces U.S. Navy Special Operator, Senior Chief William “Ryan” Owens.
“The challenges we face as a nation are great. But our people are even greater,” he said.
“And none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform. We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of a U.S. Navy Special Operator, Senior Chief William Ryan Owens. Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero –- battling against terrorism and securing our nation.”
The camera panned to Owens’ wife Carryn, as those around her stood and honored her husband.
