Trump Has 'Lengthy Discussion' With Family Of Fallen Navy SEAL

• by Randy DeSoto

President Trump "had a very somber and lengthy conversation with the family" of Chief Petty Officer William "Ryan" Owens, the Navy SEAL killed in Yemen over the weekend, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

"The president offered his sincerest condolences to Officer Owens' wife, his father and their three children," Spicer said during his Tuesday briefing. 

Owens, 36, was the first service member killed in action since Trump became commander-in-chief. The highly decorated chief petty officer was part of a SEAL team carrying out a raid against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which resulted in the deaths of 14 members of the terrorist group (including three senior leaders) and the recovery of intelligence data that could prove useful in thwarting future attacks.
