President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to Dover Air Force Base on Saturday to greet the bodies of four fallen Americans killed in Syria.
“When I’m going to meet relatives of some of our great, great heroes that have fallen, I think it might be the toughest thing I have to do as president,” Trump told reporters as he prepared to leave the White House.
Once Trump and Pompeo arrived, they attended the dignified transfer of the bodies of the Americans who were killed in a recent attack in Syria. Three of the four fallen Americans were publicly identified by the Pentagon on Friday.

The Air Force explains the dignified transfer process as follows:
A dignified transfer is the process by which, upon the return from the theater of operations to the United States, the remains of fallen military members are transferred from the aircraft to a waiting vehicle and then to the port mortuary. The dignified transfer is not a ceremony; rather, it is a solemn movement of the transfer case by a carry team of military personnel from the fallen member’s respective service. A dignified transfer is conducted for every U.S. military member who dies in the theater of operation while in the service of their country. A senior ranking officer of the fallen member’s service presides over each dignified transfer.
Following the dignified transfer, the president returned to the White House to prepare for his scheduled address
