After a historic snowstorm in Washington D.C., President Obama climbed aboard his helicopter to travel to Walter Reed Hospital to visit wounded warriors.

He stayed at the hospital for 34 minutes, according to the pool report, meeting a total of three soldiers – two Army and one Navy – during his visit.

The entire trip took about an hour, as he boarded his helicopter shortly after 3:00 pm and returned at about 4:00 p.m. The facility in Maryland is about 10 miles from the White House by helicopter.

Obama last visited the hospital in September 2015 and also visited in April of last year.
