W.H. Lists Guests Who Will Attend SOTU: ‘All of Them Represent the Unbreakable American Spirit’
HUCKABEE SANDERS: "Staff Sergeant Justin Peck. Last year Staff Sergeant Peck was part of the team clearing IED's from territory previously controlled by ISIS. When one of his compatriots was struck by a blast, he rushed to their side, saving their life while risking his own. Preston Sharp. Mr. Sharp has organized the placement of more than 40,000 American flags and red carnations on soldiers' graves as part of his goal to honor veterans in all 50 states and to challenge others to join the flag and flower challenge. Steve Staub and Sandy Keplinger, these siblings started Staub Manufacturing Solutions 20 years ago. Thanks to the Trump bump in the economy they were able to grow to new heights in 2017 and thanks to the Trump tax cut they were able to give all of their employees larger Christmas bonuses. Some of these individual stories are heroic, some are patriotic, others are tragic. But all of them represent the unbreakable American spirit and will inspire our nation to continue growing stronger, prouder, and more prosperous."
