It's Columbus Day, a federal holiday for some. President Obama will spend several hours visiting with wounded troops and their families at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. The visits, as always, are closed to press. We will only see the president departing and arriving back to the White House from the South Lawn aboard Marine One.
