The President of the United States of America and Dr. Jill Biden meet with Walking With The Wounded and the Walk of America team.

On Sunday 13th June, Walking With The Wounded’s Walk Of America team of veterans were asked to meet with Dr Jill Biden and The President of the United States of America at the steps of Air Force One at Heathrow airport.


The couple had previously met with the British veterans whilst they walked across America on the charity’s endeavour, the Walk Of America.  Dr. Biden was Patron of the expedition alongside the Duke Of Sussex and spoke to the team throughout the gruelling 4-month expedition and physically joined them alongside her husband on a few occasions.

 

The reaction of Dr. Biden when she encountered the team on Sunday was humbling – waving her hands in the air with sheer enthusiasm and excitement about being reconnected with the group.  Alongside the President, their genuine interest, support, and desire to ensure all veterans are well looked after is wholly evident. 

For WWTW, this is just the beginning of a very special relationship with the Bidens and the United States.
