Remarks Following a Visit With Wounded Troops and Their Families at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland,
November 10, 2008

Admiral, thank you very much for leading an amazing group of men and women whoprovide such compassion and skill for those who have been wounded.

You know, I’m—appreciate the families who were so gracious to me here. One of the things I tell them is that their loved one is going to get fabulous medical care, and they do. It’s inspiring to see the hard work. It’s also inspiring to see the courage of the patients. I met some of the men that I’d seen 6 months ago; I came back, and they’re totally different looking people. That’s because of the good health care. It’s also because of their mental framework. They’ve decided that nothing’s going to get them down, and they battled back. And they’re—a lot of them are doing really well.

So I want to thank you for your time, and it’s been an honor to be the Commander in Chief of such fine men and women.

Thank you.

Note: The President spoke at 11:19 a.m. In his remarks, he referred to Rear Adm. Matthew L. Nathan, USN, commander, National Naval Medical Center.
