On Monday, Department of Defense identified the Navy Seal killed in a raid on al Qaeda militants, in Yemen, as CPO William “Ryan” Owens.
Just minutes ago, President Donald Trump departed from the White House on Marine One but did not initially announce where he was heading. As the media began to have a meltdown, it was revealed that he is, in fact, heading to honor the remains of war hero: Ryan Owens.
James Mattis said Owens, said that Owens, “gave his full measure for our nation, and in performing his duty, he upheld the noblest standard of military service.”
Trump’s trip to honor the soldier was not part of his schedule. He did not want the visit to be reported until after he was at Delaware’s Dover Air Base. His daughter, Ivanka Trump, accompanied him.
