BETHESDA, Md.-After a year of construction and several years of planning and fundraising, the ribbon was finally cut today at the Warrior and Family Center at Naval Support Activity Bethesda - the home Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The center – which is the sister structure to the USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir, Va. – opens to troops and their families and caregivers tomorrow and will provide a much-needed home away from home for wounded, ill and injured troops and their families and caregivers living on the installation.
At the ceremony today, more than 200 Department of Defense members and officials, donors, special guests, and recovering troops and their family members helped cut the ribbon and tour the grounds of the new center. Check out the photos above from the event!
