They toured the new state-of-the-art complex and help to officially open it alongside 250 other supporters and participants.
“Navy SEALs, veterans, and their families, shared with The Duke and Duchess the transformational power of these recovery resources, and the importance of supporting our military personnel both in body and mind,” the Archewell Foundation said of the pair’s visit.

The show of support comes just one day after the duo spent the morning with military families at Camp Pendleton.
The visit included learning about Operation Bigs, a “first-of-its-kind mentoring program for children of military families, including active-duty, veteran, and Gold Star families,” Archewell says.
