After the ceremony, the president and first lady Melania Trump visited with veterans at the military facility. The visit lasted about 90 minutes.Sgt. 1st Class Alvaro Barrientos, who was wounded in Afghanistan on March 17, was accompanied by his wife, Tammy. Barrientos was injured when an Afghan soldier opened fire inside a base in Helmand province. Three soldiers were wounded in the attack.

Trump gave Barrientos’ wife a kiss and then pinned the medal on the sergeant’s left shirt collar, later shaking hands with Barrientos.

The Purple Heart is awarded to service members who are wounded or killed in action.

Many on Twitter praised Trump for making the trip to honor Barrientos.

Trump has pledged to support America’s service members and veterans during his presidency.

“Our veterans have delivered for this nation and now we must deliver for them,” Trump said in a February speech.

During that address to a joint session of Congress, Trump also singled out Carryn Owens, whose husband, Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens had been killed in a January raid on Yemen that Trump had authorized.

“Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity,” Trump said then.
