Melania Trump made another unannounced trip Tuesday, just in time for Independence Day celebrations.
The first lady visited with wounded service members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after traveling to the Washington-area hospital on a trip the White House did not publicly announce until after she had arrived.
Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s spokeswoman, tweeted that Mrs. Trump was visiting with “combat injured service members & their families.”
Mrs. Trump tweeted later Tuesday that she had a “wonderful visit” and offered thanks to the “many dedicated service members & medical staff who take such good care of our men & women in uniform.”

Melania sat and talked with several service members, including one who had a Trump campaign sticker on the back on his wheelchair.

Today @FLOTUS visited @WRBethesda and posted a photo of @USMarineCorps Sgt. John Peck. Not sure if she saw the back of his wheelchair, but I was with him on Saturday and took a photo that I believe her and @POTUS @realDonaldTrump would appreciate. #purpleheart #TRUMP pic.twitter.com/1h1qUbbWy2

The Walter Reed stop followed recent separate trips by the first lady that were not publicized until she arrived at her destinations in Texas and Arizona along the U.S.-Mexico border.
What a classy first lady we have been blessed with!
