Obama Visits Wounded Service Members at Walter Reed

BETHESDA, Md. — President Barack Obama has visited wounded service members at a military hospital just outside of the nation’s capital.

Obama traveled Tuesday to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda to meet with service members undergoing treatment.

The president visited for nearly two hours and met with 21 wounded service members — 13 in the Army, six in the Marines, one in the Navy and one in the Air Force. The White House did not release their names or other details about the president’s visit.

Obama’s last stop at Walter Reed was in March when he presented two wounded service members with Purple Hearts.
