Warrior Transition Brigade: To Space and Beyond

In what looks like it could it be one of the last space missions conducted by NASA since Obama has decided to cut their funding, a recent space shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS) brought back a special memento.

In the Army they have what are known as Warrior Transition Brigades. The purpose of these units is to care for service members who have been wounded in the Global War on Terrorism. Recently these units were authorized to have their own flag. The flag for WRAMC (Walter Reed Army Medical Center) was flown over the ISS. In the photo the flag is draped over the podium.
