WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Sgt. Kim Munley, the Carolina Beach native credited with helping stop the attacks at Fort Hood last year, was expected to be recognized as part of President Obama's State of the Union address Wednesday, but was never mention.

Munley said she is not disappointed for not being recognized.  She and her father, Dennis Barbour, met the President after the address.  Munley called the experience an amazing night and experience.

Munley sustained several gunshot wounds during the attack at Fort Hood and has been recovering ever since.  She recently underwent knee replacement surgery, a procedure that could end her career as an active police officer.

She said she was still somewhat amazed at what has happened, and she's still very concerned about the other officers who witnessed the attack.
