A wounded soldier from Fort Collins is headed to Washington to sit with First Lady Michelle Obama during the State of the Union address.
Army Specialist Scott Vycital was invited to hear President Barack Obama's address. The 34-year-old was hit in the head by a bullet in Mahmudya, Iraq in 2004.
Vycital had a long and painful recovery but used a federal grant to earn an accounting degree. The veteran then got a job through the Army Wounded Warrior Program.
