BETHESDA, Md. — President Barack Obama is spending part of Tuesday visiting with wounded soldiers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The White House says the president has met with 13 Army service members and that he awarded 12 Purple Hearts.
The president visits the nation's largest military hospital a few times each year. The visits take place out of the public view. Obama spent about an hour at the hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, before flying back to the White House by helicopter.
