Walter Reed Army Medical Center to Close?

The Base Closing Committee has announced their decision for recommendations of closures, and Walter Reed Army Medical Center is on the list for realignment, moving many jobs out of the District and into suburban Maryland, around 5600, all told. 26,000 jobs currently inside the Beltway will be lost as part of this round of closures, with all but 3,000 or so remaining in the greater metropolitan area.

The Mayor and Del. Holmes Norton are both promising to fight the action, but neither have what anyone could remotely consider “power.”

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
