Wounded Army Vet Cory Remsburg Honored During SOTU Address

Army Ranger Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg was an honored guest at tonight’s State of the Union. Remsburg was hit by a roadside bomb in Kandahar, Afghanistan, on his 10th deployment. It left him in a coma for three months, partially paralyzed and brain-damaged.

President Obama praised Remsburg's strength and determination in his address: "My fellow Americans, men and women like Cory remind us that America has never come easy.  Our freedom, our democracy, has never been easy. Sometimes we stumble; we make mistakes; we get frustrated or discouraged.

He continued, "The America we want for our kids - a rising America where honest work is plentiful and communities are strong; where prosperity is widely shared and opportunity for all lets us go as far as our dreams and toil will take us - none of it is easy.  But if we work together; if we summon what is best in us, with our feet planted firmly in today but our eyes cast towards tomorrow - I know it's within our reach."
