"Before I get to Richmond I plan on visiting our brave Soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center," noted Newman. "I am so impressed with the professional care and medical services that are provided to our heroes. It's a moving and inspiring experience each time I visit Walter Reed and it will be an honor to drive a car that will pay tribute to all the personnel of the U.S. Army Medical Department."
