President Donald Trump surprised an Army wife during Tuesday’s State of the Union address, bringing her husband home from Afghanistan and directly into the chamber.
Trump began by introducing Amy Williams and her two children, speaking of their sacrifice as the family of a soldier on his fourth deployment.
“War places a heavy burden on our extraordinary military families,” Trump said. “Especially spouses like Amy Williams from Fort Bragg, North Carolina and her two children, six-year-old Eliana and three-year-old Roland. Amy helps other military families. For the past seven months, her husband has been in Afghanistan for seven months on his fourth deployment. Amy’s kids had not seen their father’s face in many months. Your sacrifice makes it possible for all of our people to live in safety and in peace and we want to thank you. Thank you, Amy.”
