The White House
The President, First Lady, Vice President Biden and Dr Biden joined White House staff on the South Lawn of the White House for a moment of silence at 8:46 AM ET – the time that the first airplane struck the World Trade Center. Later in the day, the President and First Lady participated in service projects to commemorate the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance.

The First Lady visited the USO Warrior and Family Center and the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, Intrepid Spirit One at Fort Belvoir, VA.


The National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) is dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and research of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder, and other service related illnesses and injuries among service members, veterans and their families.

Mrs. Obama began her visit by completing a service project with military children at the USO Warrior Care Center. Together they created crafts for delivery to the NICoE and decorated a USO banner that will be displayed at a barbeque and concert for military families. Following her visit with military children, Mrs. Obama toured the NICoE and their rehab facilities. She met with military personnel recovering from PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and other service related injuries.
