War Hero Honored At State Of The Union Address [Video]

Subscribe to Channel 95.7 on

Of all places, I didn’t think one of the most inspiring moments of the week would come from the State of the Union address, but it came at the end of President Obama’s speech.

President Obama was telling the story of US Army Ranger Sergeant First Class Cory Remsburg, who was injured by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan during his 10th deployment. Remsburg was in a coma for three months, partially paralyzed, and still blind in one eye.

From President Obama:

“Slowly, steadily, with the support of caregivers like his dad Craig, and the community around him, Cory has grown stronger. Day by day, he’s learned to speak again and stand again and walk again – and he’s working toward the day when he can serve his country again. ‘My recovery has not been easy,’ he says. ‘Nothing in life that’s worth anything is easy.'”


“Cory is here tonight. And like the Army he loves, like the America he serves, Sergeant First Class Cory Remsburg never gives up, and he does not quit.”

In a powerful moment; President Obama, Vice President Biden, Speaker Boehner, Congress, the Presidential Cabinet, Supreme Court, and everyone in the room stood, and looked up to honor Sergeant First Class Remsburg who was standing next to Michelle Obama on the balcony.

The room then lit up with applause, this was the longest standing ovation of the evening, and much deserved.

Noise was also made on Twitter:
