During the event, Savannah Guthrie wore a black lace gown for the event. Tom Hanks presented her with the Caregiver Champion Award. The legend mentioned Savannah’s work with military caregivers. Savannah choked back tears as she shared a passionate speech.

“Every person here tonight, every caregiver and veteran at home, you are showing the world what love looks like, what love acts like, what love gives, and what love sacrifices,” Savannah Guthrie said in her speech, which you can view here on Instagram. “It is the love of country that calls our service members to duty. And it is love that propels mothers and fathers, spouses, siblings, children — to hold them and care for them when they return, with wounds seen, and unseen.”
