During the past few weeks, several special visitors came to see Sgt. Joshua Cope in his hospital room at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Professional basketball player Alonzo Mourning, the first lady and the president of the United States have stopped by to visit with the wounded veteran from Panama City Beach.
“He (President George W. Bush) said, ‘I’m so, so sorry’ with tears in his eyes as he left,” said Cope’s mother, Linda. “They (the Bushes) are the humblest people.”
