First lady Melania Trump made an unannounced visit to wounded service members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland on Tuesday.
Mrs. Trump, who underwent kidney surgery at the Bethesda hospital back in May, didn’t publicly announce her visit until after she arrived — the latest in a string of “surprise” visits to locations throughout the U.S.
The first lady tweeted that she had a “wonderful visit” at the medical center.
She also thanked “the many dedicated service members & medical staff who take such good care of our men & women in uniform.”
The White House recently donated food to Walter Reed that was prepared for the congressional picnic, which President Trump canceled amid the immigration crisis surrounding the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy.

Trump’s unannounced visit Tuesday follows similarly unannounced trips to Texas and Arizona along the U.S.- Mexico border, where she visited migrant children who had been separated from their families.
