As she prepares to give a show for wounded vets at the Walter Reed Medical center in Washington D.C., Kathy worries about how far she can go with her usual brand of acerbic wit. Asking advice from military friends and others, she realizes the routines she performed in war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan might not be appropriate, so she tones it down -- a bit. Prior to the show she mingles for the day with vets recovering from losing limbs (one jokes that he heard it cost an arm and a leg to meet her) and their families. Her show starts slowly (no one laughs at first), but she eventually wins them over, with the help of a wheelchair bound vet she had befriended earlier in the day.
