Savannah Guthrie is no stranger to assignments taking her away from NBC studios in New York City, but her latest might be the most poignant.
On Thursday morning's installment on the Today Show, the veteran journalist tuned in from Washington D.C. as opposed to Rockefeller Plaza, as just the night before she was in attendance at the annual Elizabeth Dole Foundation's Hidden Heroes Gala.
Savannah has been an ambassador for the foundation for the last five years; it's an organization that honors and supports both veterans and their caregivers who help them through their combat-related disabilities or mental health struggles.
Coming off of the inspiring night – which also saw attendance from Adam Driver, a former marine, and Tom Hanks, a chairman for the foundation – Savannah took to both Instagram and the Today Show to further highlight both the work the foundation does and of course, the caregivers it supports.
While on the show, she confirmed there "wasn't a dry eye in the house," as the night made special recognition of male caregivers.
She continued: "It was fun to see Adam Driver win that award, he gave a beautiful speech," giving a shout-out to the House of Gucci actor, who was the recipient of the Caregiver Champion award, an honor Savannah herself received just last year.
During a separate segment interviewing just some of the caregivers honored, Savannah aptly maintained: "I always say caregivers are serving our country as well, when they are taking care of our veterans who served, and sacrificed so much for us."
Later sharing photos of the special night on her Instagram, Savannah wrote: "Just so honored to be with our incredible military caregivers and highlight their stories – thank you."
She added: "@elizabethdolefoundation and Hidden Heroes and my co-host with the most @tomhanks – and congrats Adam Driver!"
Her followers quickly took to the comments section under the post with their praise, with one fan of hers writing: "Best ambassador ever! Thank you, SG!" as another added: "Wow," and a third left a string of red heart emojis.
Just last year when Savannah was the recipient of the Caregiver Champion award, she said in her speech: "You've taught me courage, determination, duty, faith, and hope," adding: "These are the qualities of every family I've met. But above all, what I see in you, what I really see is love."
