BAMC unveils painting by wounded warrior
July 23, 2019
Retired Sgt. Mario Lopez poses for a photo with Brooke Army Medical Center staff members after his painting of the American flag is unveiled in the Medical Mall of the hospital at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston. Lopez, a former BAMC patient who was severely injured in an IED attack in Afghanistan in 2008, learned to use painting therapeutically to help him overcome an array of challenges he has faced over the past decade. The painting was donated to BAMC by former United Nations Ambassador Warren W. Tichenor.
