An eastern Iowa Soldier recovering from an IED attack got a special visit in the hospital Thursday.

President Obama met with US Navy Petty Officer Taylor Morris and his girlfriend at Walter Reed Medical Center.

Morris lost both arms and legs in an IED explosion in Afghanistan in early May.

Morris previously served on the President’s secret service detail, but had never met him.

President Obama invited Morris and his family to join the first family at the White House on the Fourth of July.
