Secretary McDonough Runs with the Flag
The Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Denis McDonough, joined Eagle Nation in Washington D.C. to carry the flag from the Veterans Affairs Headquarters to the Capitol Building. “Running with Old Glory is an unrivaled privilege, but the purpose that Team RWB underscores is that our physical health connects ourselves to our mental health,” said Secretary McDonough.
