Donald Trump Attends Dignified Transfer of US Navy SEAL Killed in Yemen Raid

Chief Special Warfare Operator William "Ryan" Owens died Sunday.

Chief Special Warfare Operator William "Ryan" Owens, 36, died early Sunday "of wounds sustained in a raid against al-Qaeda" in Yemen, according to a Pentagon statement released Monday.

Servicemembers killed abroad are brought back to the U.S. and given a dignified transfer, in which a flag-draped container with the soldier's remains is carried from the aircraft to a vehicle for proper burial.
