Right Before July 4, First Lady Melania Trump Makes a Surprise Visit to Wounded Troops at Walter Reed

The day before the United States celebrates the Founding Fathers declaring their independence from Great Britain, first lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit to the wounded service members recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Trump’s spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, made the announcement shortly after they had arrived at the hospital:

“I had a wonderful visit to @WRBethesda today,” Trump tweeted. “Thank you to the many dedicated service members & medical staff who take such good care of our men & women in uniform.”

This is not the first time someone from the Trump family visited Walter Reed before a holiday.

President Donald Trump visited Walter Reed before Christmas last year and personally awarded a soldier with the Purple Heart.

“One of the most powerful moments of my life watching @POTUS give the Purple Heart to this American Hero. Amazed by the strength and resilience of the men and women in our Armed Forces,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted.
