President Donald Trump's guests for his State of the Union speech Tuesday include Miami Valley welders who have benefited from his tax overhaul.

White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Staub Manufacturing Solutions owners Steve Staub of Tipp City and Sandy Keplinger of Springfield will attend the speech. Their employee Corey Adams, of Huber Heights, will also be present.

The company has been able to hire more employees due to the GOP tax reform plan passed late last year, according to a White House statement.

Other attendees include Americans who have battled wildfires in California and flooding in Texas, as well as a soldier who re-enlisted to fight against the Islamic State group after losing his legs and going blind from a roadside bomb.

The guests will be seated in the box of first lady Melania Trump.
