President Obama praised Lt. Brian Murphy as an exemplary American in his State of the Union address on Feb. 12. The hero police officer who took 12 bullets battling Wade Michael Page, the white supremacist who shot six Sikhs at the Oak Creek gurdwara, was very surprised.

But the support from public officials and the Sikh community has made his pains more bearable, he said.
