The Center for the Intrepid is a rehabilitation facility that treats amputees and burn victims. It was specifically built to provide care for United States servicemen and women who have served in military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Veterans from previous conflicts are also eligible to receive treatment, as well as military personnel who have sustained injuries in other operations, training exercises, or in non-combat situations.
