Not a Dry Eye: Trump Pays Tribute to SEAL Ryan Owens, Honors Widow Carryn [VIDEO]

Not a Dry Eye: Trump Pays Tribute to SEAL Ryan Owens, Honors Widow Carryn [VIDEO]

In his address to a Joint Session of Congress, President Trump spoke on many topics — the problems wrought by illegal immigration, the need to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and working towards a free and fair international market, among others.

But nothing, nothing, struck the hearts of those attending and those watching at home than his tribute to Navy SEAL Ryan Owens, who was killed in a January raid in Yemen.

The President said:

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.

I just spoke to General Mattis, who reconfirmed that, and I quote, “Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies.” Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity.

For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom –- we will never forget him.

Owens’s widow Carryn was deeply moved to hear those words. The audience, too, was affected, giving her a sustained standing ovation, honoring the young widow and mother of three children.

Mrs. Owens looked heavenward, tears streaming down her face. I doubt there were many dry eyes in the audience. I know mine weren’t.

Tributes poured in from social media.
