For the past six years, Vice President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden have invited wounded warriors and their families to dinner at the Vice President’s Residence. One of their guests this past year was Master Sergeant (MSG) Cedric King.
In the summer of 2012, MSG King was on a mission with his platoon in Afghanistan when he stepped on an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) that resulted in him losing two limbs and sustaining multiple other injuries. But, his story doesn’t end there. MSG King found the strength and motivation to not only recover, but to persevere after a tragic event. His resiliency is an inspiration.
On Tuesday, Dr. Biden and MSG King appeared on the Meredith Vieira Show to discuss the efforts by Joining Forces to support those who have sacrificed so much for our country. The two also shared what MSG King’s road to recovery has been like not only for him, but for his family after he sustained life altering injuries.
