Pool escorted into Walter Reeds USOWarrior & Family Center at 3:27, where a Christmas tree was decorated,the phrase Merry Christmaswas strewn out across the wall in festive lettersand gingerbread houses were on display near a window.

About a dozen individuals were seated at tables as individuals in uniform stood nearby awaiting POTUS. At least two individuals were in wheelchairs and one was wearing a white eyepatch.

POTUS entered at 3:53 and had a brief exchange with a woman in uniform, then moved to a table with a woman in a black beret and a man in a wheelchair. After shaking their hands, he seated himself and listened intently to their words. A request for a photo with an iPhone was granted.

Next up was a table of four where aman in a wheelchair was alsoseated and another request for an iPhoneshot was granted.

Unbelievable progress since the last time, unbelievable, POTUS said loudly as the conversation went on. The rest of the conversations were inaudible.


Pool escorted out at 3:59. Your pooler has placed a request in with the White House for the names of individuals.
