THE PRESIDENT: Once again, I had the honor of thanking the docs and nurses that provide such incredible care to our wounded soldiers.

Every time I come here I'm amazed by the courage and decency and strength of those who wear the nation's uniform. It is such an honor to be the Commander-in-Chief of such fine men and women.

Thank you all.
