A solider from Phoenix received a standing ovation after President Barack Obama told his story.
Cory Remsburg, an Army Ranger, first met Obama overseas. Just months after their meeting Remsburg was nearly killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. He’s since met with Obama three times, improving as time goes on.
Remsburg’s partially paralyzed and has brain damage. His father, Craig, a retired Air Force Reserve firefighter, and stepmother Annie, are his caretakers.
Obama wrapped up the end of his State of the Union address reminding Americans to be like Remsburg and continue fighting.
“Cory is here tonight. And like the Army he loves, like the America he serves, Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg never gives up, and he does not quit.
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.”
