They did well by my family when care was needed.
Retail? Sometimes I feel there is no hope, geez
My nephew got great treatment. But he told me there was high crime real close.
But, we won’t need it since we won’t have a military plus we’ll have “emergency treatment centers” all over the place.
Huh? What? ???? Am I living in an alternate universe? Walter Reed closing?
This American says THANK-YOU for the service that legendary hospital provided.
IMO, this is more about destroying another U. S. icon than anything else. Medical centers across this nation are revitalized by new wings. Services are shifted as building takes place. Pretty soon you have a whole new facility.
I’m sure this took place at Walter Reed a number of times during it’s history. Why stop now?
The relative cost would be insignificant.
There should always be a Walter Reed hospital. It’s an American institution and has been for over 100 years.
It’s only one hundred years old; there is no reason to keep it open. It was a hospital; not a national treasure.
Whenever they're not on tour, these ladies give this precious gift to the warriors at WR.
We got some purty good people in the US.
Better it be used as a shopping mall than a mosque.
I was assigned there from ‘77-’81. Worked in both the old and new hospital (at the time). It is a shame to see how the crown jewel of Army teaching hospitals deteriorated.
Walter Reed’s age has brought it to the crossing between well-deserved sentiment and sheer economics.
As a new “national historic” site, a few of its iconic buildings can continue to inform future generations about its storied history, while the great work that has gone on there continues to go on in newer facilities.
Sometimes “change” is the right thing. (not always!!)
