Hanna to Host Rick Yarosh

- An Iraq War veteran from Windsor will be a special guest of Congressman Richard Hanna at the State of the Union address. Retired Army Sergeant Rick Yarosh will join Hanna in listening to President Obama's speech in Washington.

Yarosh was severely burned by an IED while serving in Iraq in 2006. In addition to his burns, Yarosh lost his ears, nose, some fingers and his right leg below the knee. Despite the ongoing hardship, he has a positive outlook on life and now serves as a motivational speaker encouraging others to seek happiness in life.

Hanna calls him a tremendous example of dedication and perseverance.
