Sadly, the United States lost a Navy Seal over the weekend during a special operation in Yeman according to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. With Spicer adding, “The president offered his sincerest condolences to Officer Owens’ wife, his father and their three children.” However, it’s what President Trump did for the family that was so special, we just know it won’t get reported by mainstream media.
According to Sean Spicer, President Trump personally called Owens’ wife in which he had a “very somber and lengthy conversation with the family.

President Trump also released a statement on Sunday:
“Americans are saddened this morning with news that a life of a heroic service member has been taken in our fight against the evil of radical Islamic terrorism. My deepest thoughts and humblest prayers are with the family of this fallen service member.”
It’s so nice that we have a President who takes the time to call the families of our fallen heroes. It’s like that President Trump will also meet and grieve privately with the family. Beautiful!
