The Center for the Intrepid National Armed Forces Rehabilitation Center at the Brooke Army Medical Center, in Fort Sam Houston, provides military patients and veterans with severe extremity injuries, amputations, and burns the best opportunity to regain their pre-injury abilities in a supportive, healing environment.
The center is said to be the most advanced rehabilitation facility in the world.
