Who will get it and what will the price be?

When I was stationed in the Pentagon (2007-2008), scuttlebutt had it that the State Department would take over the Walter Reed campus.

I was assigned to the Pentagon’s DiLorenzo TRICARE clinic, so our parent unit was Walter Reed. I went there once a month for meetings. Anyway, I found it interesting that part of the Walter Reed Campus (or post) had million dollar homes near it, yet on the other side, it was the ghetto.

Kid you not, there was a fried chicken restaurant on the crappy side, not far from the main gate, it’s name: Little Peckers.

Historic designation has been applied for Bldg. 1, the rose garden and some of the roads, the State Department gets 20 something acres, and DC has first claim to the remaining 100+ acres at $1,000 per square foot if I remember correctly.
