BETHESDA, Md. —

President Barack Obama has met with wounded service members during a visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The president traveled to the hospital just outside Washington by helicopter a few hours before the House was expected to consider a Republican proposal to address the "fiscal cliff."

The White House says the president met with 10 wounded troops during his stay. It was Obama's first visit to the hospital since Sept. 11.

Obama has frequently visited service members wounded in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars during his presidency.
