Just a day after receiving the Medal of Honor by the president of the United States, former Army staff sergeant Clinton Romesha has declined an invite by the first lady to be her guest at the State of the Union address Tuesday night.
President Obama presented the Medal of Honor to an Army veteran Monday in a White House ceremony attended by the military's top leaders.
"I've had buddies that have lost eyesight and lost limbs," Sgt. Romesha said. "I would rather give them all the credit they deserve for sacrificing so much. For me it was nothing, really. I got a little peppered, that was it."
"I really feel bad about not being able to go. But a lot of these guys I haven't seen a really long time and I'd like to hang with them just a little bit more," he added.
