This week, Dr. Jill Biden traveled to San Antonio, Texas to highlight the strength of America’s service members, veterans, and their families. On Wednesday morning, Dr. Biden delivered remarks at Women in the World Texas:
As Second Lady, during my travels across the country and around the world, I have had the honor of meeting remarkable people who lift us up…
What I have learned along the way, is that no matter how difficult the situation, there are exceptional individuals who step up to the challenge; who go above and beyond to make an even bigger difference in their community. I see that type of extraordinary commitment in our service members, veterans, and their families, and I am always inspired by their strength, resilience, and pride.
Afterwards, Dr. Biden visited the Center for the Intrepid at Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC), which provides innovative rehabilitation for our wounded warriors.
Dr. Biden’s latest visit to BAMC was inspired by her trip last month to London for the Invictus Games, an international sporting event for wounded service members.
