Thomas Gunderson is one of the victims the President and First Lady met Wednesday in Vegas. Gunderson says he was running toward Mandalay Bay Sunday night when one of the shooter’s rounds pierced his leg.
Despite his horrific injury Gunderson pulled himself up onto his feet when the Trumps entered his hospital room.
I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand! There may be plenty of issues in this country but I will always respect my country, my president and my flag. Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my President the respect he deserves! – Thomas Gunderson
