They visited the "Home of the Big Red One" as they worked to assess the overall health of those serving in the Army's ranks.
The senior leaders met with commanders and health professionals to look at different programs, services and resources, including the evaluation of disabilities, suicide and sexual assault prevention and Wounded Warrior care efforts.
