Interviews with wounded military personnel in rehabilitation at Walter Reed Army Hospital originally taped on March 10, 2005 were shown. Additionally, a follow-up telephone interview with Major Duckworth on December 29, 2005 was aired. Major Duckworth spoke about her state of recovery, the party held to celebrate the anniversary of her survival, and her plans to run for Congress.

U.S. military personnel wounded in Iraq, and in physical therapy treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, spoke about their experience in Iraq and adjustment to life with their injuries. They also talked about the demands of military service, expectations for the future, their personal experiences with the hospital staff and other wounded personnel, as well as the continuing military mission in Iraq. 

Colonel Gilman, the commander of the Walter Reed Health Care System, was also interviewed and conducted a tour of the physical and occupational therapy facilities for injured soldiers. Walter Reed Army Medical Center was the temporary home for some of the most seriously injured soldiers from the war in Iraq. Almost four thousand patients from Operation Iraqi Freedom had been treated at Walter Reed since the war began; about a quarter of those patients were injured in battle. close
