A Visit with Wounded Warriors in San Antonio, Texas
Joining Forces is a national initiative that mobilizes all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned. Get involved at JoiningForces.gov.
Continuing the Joining Forces kick off tour this week, the First Lady and Dr. Biden visited several wounded warriors and their families at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas -- one of the nation's premier medical centers serving our troops and their families. "I think we leave here more inspired, because of the resilience and strength we see in our Wounded Warriors and their families," Dr. Biden said after meeting with soldiers and their families.
They personified both the sacrifice of war on those who fight them on our behalf and their families as well as the extraordinary strength of America's military families. Some wounded warriors will return to the front lines and military service. Others may not, but still have a lifetime of skills, strength, and commitment to service to contribute to our country. From ensuring they have the care, support and services they need to expanding opportunities for meaningful careers and active roles in our communities, all segments of our society can work together to express our debt of gratitude to the military families who serve and protect us by supporting and engaging them.
