Two police officers credited with stopping last year's shooting rampage at Fort Hood will be guests of the first lady during Wednesday's State of the Union speech.

Sgts. Kimberly Munley and Mark Todd will watch President Barack Obama's address with Michelle Obama in a gallery overlooking the House floor. On Nov. 5, the officers, who were civilian members of the Fort Hood police force, opened fire on Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who is accused of killing 13 people in the worst mass murder on a U.S. military base. Munley was wounded in the incident at the Texas base.

An administration official also said Jill Biden, the vice president's wife, invited Julia Frost, a former Marine trumpeter whom Mrs. Biden met when visiting Coastal Carolina Community College. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the White House had not yet released the full list.

The official also said Mrs. Obama would sit with Trevor Yager, an openly gay advertising executive from Indianapolis whose agency grew by more than 200 percent and doubled the number of employees. The official says Yager credits Obama's approach to business and the $787 billion economic stimulus measure.
