Tomorrow Night (Tuesday) will be President Obama's final State of the Union Address to the Nation.

Toms River native, Army Spc.Tyler McGibbon, will be a special guest of U.S. Rep Darren LaHood (R) from Illinois

McGibbon was thrown from the Humvee he was riding in during a tour in Kuwait and suffered multiple skull fractures and other injuries in an accident Dec 2014. It left him in a coma for three months.

He still has a long road for a full recovery, but McGibbon continues to receive a variety of therapies every day.

“He’s come a long way,”  his father, George McGibbon said, from the three-month coma. “Only 10 percent of those who have his injury wake up. We’re much more lucky than most.”

McGibbon, a 2013 graduate of Toms River High School East, served with the 2nd Battalion, 34th Armor Regiment based at Fort Riley, Kansas, as a cavalry scout to do reconnaissance.
