BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Western New York native who was hailed a hero in the Fort Hood shootings recently got to meet with his Commander in Chief.
Major Patrick Miller, who is from Allegany, helped save lives in the moments after the massacre by leading people to safety and calling 911, despite being shot in the abdomen.
Miller now lives in Kansas City and got to meet with President Obama when he stopped in Missouri to make a speech on the economy.
"He just asked how I was doing and obviously thanked me again for everything on April 2 and was glad to see I was doing well," Miller told 2 On Your Side by phone.
Major Miller is in Kansas City to attend the nearby Command and General Staff College, where he's receiving special training and education to continue rising up the ranks in the Army.
