Heitkamp Brings Veteran to Union Speech

Posted: Updated:

Senator Heitkamp's brought a guest to the State of the Union Speech. His name is Eric Marts, a wounded veteran who hosts a radio show in Fargo.

Marts says he was honored to attend and listen to the President speak. He says the most touching part of the night was when the audience gave a standing ovation to another wounded veteran, Sergeant 1st Class Cory Remsburg.

"We had a lot in common that was very touching. I wish that I could have found my way through the crowd to be able to give him a big hug, and let him know that I've got his back side and welcome home," says veteran Eric Martseteran.

He's staying in D.C. until Saturday and plans to meet with officials to help advance veteran issues.
