On Thursday night, President Biden visited wounded troops at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The Aug. 26 suicide bombing at the Kabul airport caused 15 Marines to become wounded. They are currently being treated at the hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. The bombing occurred during the evacuations of Americans, Afghans, and allies. Unfortunately, this came before the nearly two-decade war in Afghanistan ended on Aug. 31.
On the day of the attack, 11 Marines lost their lives, along with one Army soldier and one Navy corpsman. President Biden went to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware on Sunday, and witnessed the return of their remains to US soil in a heavy “dignified transfer.”
CURRENT STATUS: One in critical condition. Three in serious condition, and 11 in stable condition.
