The widow of a Navy SEAL who was killed while serving in Yemen was honored by President Trump during his joint sessions address Tuesday night.
Caryn Owens is the widow of Senior Chief William “Ryan” Owens and attended the speech as the guest of Mrs. Trump in a symbolic gesture of Trump’s desire to support deployed troops and crush radical Islamic terrorism.
In an emotional moment, Owens (on behalf of her husband) received a two minute standing ovation, during which she seemingly looked to heavens in acknowledgment of her husband.
